Wastequip, Charlotte, North Carolina, celebrated National Garbage Man Day June 14 by hosting the Charlotte-based Milton Road Boys and Girls Club members on a field trip at the company’s Toter plant. According to the company, attendees learned how garbage cans are made, got to explore garbage trucks up close, and got to meet waste collection workers and learn about their profession. Drivers from the city of Statesville, North Carolina; Longwood, Florida-based Waste Pro; and Ontario, California-based Amrep were on hand to answer questions about their equipment and about careers in the waste industry.

“We’re proud to honor garbage workers as part of National Garbage Man Day and to offer Boys and Girls Club members the chance to learn about manufacturing and careers in the waste industry,” Wastequip CEO Marty Bryant says.

Wastequip staff volunteered with Boys and Girls Club members by helping them write thank you cards to the garbage workers, teaching them about waste industry careers and providing them with a tour of the Toter plant. The members also rotated outside to explore the garbage trucks, meet the drivers and learn about waste equipment.
