Hire a Sanitation Worker

 

Sanitation workers are crucial contributors to keeping communities safe, clean, and functional. Garbage and waste disposal is something that people may not necessarily think about. Aside from throwing out the trash on schedule, our thoughts on garbage disposal typically stop when the garbage truck passes by the street. Sanitation workers are hardworking individuals who, by doing their job effectively, help households, businesses, and communities thrive. 

 

Sanitation workers are typically employed by cities and municipalities. However, they can also work for commercial businesses and organizations. The work schedule is during the daytime and takes place outside with sanitation workers taking on different routes on a specific schedule and timeline. Working as a sanitation worker is physically demanding, with workers having to be on their feet, lift heavy objects, and deal with different weather conditions. 

 

Hiring sanitation workers begins by creating a job description. It is the first point of communication between the hiring organization and job seekers. A job description can do so much more than provide a list of responsibilities, requirements, and qualifications for a position. It can catch the attention of candidates, leave a good impression, and encourage them to apply. While a job description may seem like a formal document from hiring managers, it is telling job seekers, “This is the opportunity you’ve been waiting for, apply now!”   

Responsibilities of a Sanitation Worker

 

Sanitation workers travel from one location to another, from different neighborhoods and businesses, to collect solid and liquid waste. Collection may be done manually or with the use of an automated garbage disposal truck. They are responsible for ensuring that recyclable materials like glass, paper, and plastic are separated from other garbage types. 

 

After garbage collection, sanitation workers transport and dispose of the garbage safely to an approved landfill or dumpsite. If needed, sanitation workers also crush or burn garbage safely in a controlled environment. For some types of garbage like large pieces of electronic devices, appliances, or pieces of furniture, sanitation workers are responsible for collecting them on the roadside. They use proper body mechanics and lifting techniques to prevent injury. Lastly, sanitation workers ensure that no debris or waste is left on the street. They inspect the truck routinely to prevent damage and breakdown. 

 

Skills and Qualifications of a Sanitation Worker

 

While there is no formal education specific for sanitation workers, most municipalities, cities, and companies prefer candidates to have a high school diploma or GED. Sanitation workers who operate a garbage disposal truck must have a valid commercial driver’s license. Candidates must be knowledgeable of different types of waste and proper waste disposal methods. A good sense of direction and a good understanding of GPS and mapping sites are beneficial. 

Because sanitation workers take charge of numerous stops each route, candidates should be punctual and have excellent time management skills. Also, being able to work well with a team is essential, as well as interpersonal and communication skills. Lastly, candidates must have the physical strength and stamina to be on their feet for extended periods. They must be able to lift and carry heavy objects like furniture and household appliances without causing injury to themselves.
