Health and Safety of Drivers

  • Waste Drivers do not drive on private property

  • For safety reasons, a waste driver is not allowed to "criss cross" the street to pick up waste on both sides of the street with the exception of dead end streets.

  • For safety reasons, waste drivers do their routes turning to the right as much as possible, this means that the left hand side of the street may be collected significantly later in the day.

  • For safety reasons, waste drivers make every effort NOT to back up in any area - there are some exceptions to this.

  • From time to time there are areas where wires hang low and, for safety reasons, drivers do not enter these areas.
