Summer is ending and school will be starting back up soon. Penn Waste would like to remind the communities we service to take precautionary measures when near our garbage trucks to ensure a safe environment. Here are some safety tips to help keep our communities safe:
Keep Your Distance – Garbage trucks are bulky with many blind spots. Keeping your distance will ensure we can see you AND no debris hits you, your children or your vehicle should it accidentally fall out of our truck. Please stay back at least 30 feet. Also, do not let your children go near or climb on the truck.
If you cannot see the driver’s eyes, they most likely cannot see you.
Proceed Carefully – If you must pass a garbage truck, do so with extreme caution. Make sure none of our employees or pedestrians are nearby and there is no on-coming traffic.
Stay Calm – Getting frustrated and having road rage will not make our trucks move any faster. Irrational behavior will only lead to any accident.
Stay Alert – Garbage trucks stop and start often due to the nature of our business, which is why it is important not to be distracted near one. If you hear a back-up alarm, move away from the truck.
It takes a garbage truck twice as along as a passenger car to stop which is also, why it is important to keep your distance.
Penn Waste is committed to the safety of our employees and the communities we service. Please drive carefully around our vehicles and be extra vigilant since children will be returning to their bus stops soon.
