WV Governor Signs Law: “Slow Down to Get Around”

Posted August 11th, 2014

WV Governor, Earl Ray Tomblin ceremonially signed a new law cracking down on reckless driving around waste and recycling vehicles.  The bill (Senate Bill 378) was authored by State Senator Donald Cookman of Hampshire county and endorsed by the National Waste & Recycling Association.  The law REQUIRES WV drivers to slow down to 15 mph when passing a stopped waste or recycling vehicle.

Gov. Tomblin held the bill’s commemoration ceremony at the Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office in Martinsburg in memory of local sanitation worker Jeremy Tabler, whose tragic death on the job in March 2013 inspired Sen. Cookman, his representative, to push for safety reforms.

“The ‘Slow Down to Get Around’ bill was a result of Jeremy Tabler’s tragic death. This legislation, which I refer to as ‘Tiffany’s Bill,’ would not have become law if it had not been for the perseverance and dedication of Tiffany Tabler, Jeremy’s widow, and their two daughters, Annaliese and Jewelia, as well as their attorney, Ron Harman,” Cookman said.

Tabler is survived by his wife and two young daughters, who were present at the bill signing.

Sharps: Please Dispose Properly & Safely

Posted August 17th, 2011

The frequency of sharp objects in solid waste and the potential for serious injury to not only the person “taking out the trash” and those picking up the trash is an increasing and dangerous hazard. 

For the safety of our employees and the ones “taking out the trash”, please take the following precautions when disposing of sharp objects that have the potential to injure others:

  • Medical needles should be placed and stored in a hard plastic container, such as an empty laundry detergent bottle with lid/cap securely closed.  Please place this container inside a heavy, corrugated cardboard box and use duct tape to close box before placing with solid waste for collection.  Labeling box as “Sharps Enclosed” also cautions our employees to handle with care.
  • Check with your doctor or medical supplier about disposal through their procedures and/or providers.
  • Broken glass of any shape, size and quantity must be placed in a heavy, corrugated box and securely duct taped shut.  Use of contact/shelving paper can aid in not only picking up broken glass but provides safer handling when placing in box for disposal.  Labeling box as “Broken Glass” also cautions our employees to handle with care.
  • Sharp plastic packaging poses the potential of ripping your bags and of cutting our employees.  Please wrap sharp plastics with duct tape before placing in trash bags or place in cardboard box, shut securely, for disposal.

Using common sense in the disposal of sharps and the awareness of potential hazards to others will help keep everyone injury free.
