DAYTON, Ohio—June 12, 2013—It’s dirty. It’s difficult. It can even be dangerous. Driving a 25-ton truck and collecting waste and recycling is not a job for everyone.
Rumpke is celebrating the men and women who keep our neighborhoods clean and green on June 17, National Garbage Man Day. The proposed new holiday, conceived by a Florida-based company, encourages raised awareness for sanitation industry workers.
“Through rain, snow, sleet, and heat our garbage men and women work in all weather conditions to keep our communities clean,” said Regional Vice President Mike Bramkamp. “This is a day to take a moment to say thank you.”
Customers can celebrate by using this printable card, which can be left for drivers on collection day or mailed to 1932 E. Monument Ave., Dayton, Ohio 45402. Customers can also use an online feedback form.
Rumpke employs more than 1,000 drivers in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. Current openings are posted at Rumpke Careers.
