Garbage & Recycling

KBB works closely with the Government of Bermuda’s Department of Waste Management to keep our island clean and beautiful. Our collaborative efforts and joint projects support KBB’s mission to reduce waste, eliminate litter and beautify the island through action and education.

Sanitation Workers Appreciation Ideas

Sanitation Workers Appreciation Day is celebrated every year on June 17. Sanitation Workers Appreciation Week is always the week leading up to June 17.

KBB encourages everyone in Bermuda to show appreciation to our island’s sanitation workers as often as possible, especially during Sanitation Workers Appreciation Week. Here are some ideas you can consider for sharing a bit of extra kindness with the men and women who work so hard to keep Bermuda clean and beautiful:

  1. Offer a thank-you note, cold drink or cookies to the trash truck crews in your neighbourhood and sanitation workers at Bermuda’s dump facilities

  2. Toot your horn and give a thank-you shout-out to the crews when you see them on the road

  3. Post about your positive experiences with sanitation workers and share your appreciation on social media (be sure to tag @keepbermudabeautiful and @bermudagovernment when posting)

Other ways you can participate include teaching your family about responsible waste management, proper disposal and the 3R’s – REDUCE, REUSE and RECYCLE.
