National Garbage Man Day is a National Holiday celebrated on June 17th. Â We celebrate this day for an entire week because your service day may not fall on the actual holiday. Â The trash industry is one of the most dangerous jobs to have and Bates Trucking prides our employees on maintaining a safe environment for the crews on the street as well as the communities we service. Â It is a really hot week this week so please help us celebrate our garbage men and woman by leaving out Gatorade, water, snacks, etc that will help them get through these hot days. Please follow us on FaceBook and/or Instagram to find out exactly what that means and how you can participate.
