Safety Philosophy

As one of our guiding principals, safety is part of everything we do at Red River.

By placing such a huge emphasis on safe practices, we not only protect our employees from the risk of injuries common to waste collection, but ensure that our fleet can focus on what they do best: serving our communities.

Slow Down to Get Around

Slow Down to Get Around-HRA pillar of Red River’s safety program, the Slow Down to Get Around campaign reminds motorists to drive cautiously near waste collection vehicles. Being hit by cars is the #1 cause of injury among waste and recycling employees.

To increase awareness, Red River places decals on all of its collection vehicles to highlight the campaign’s message and distributes flyers in the communities we serve.

We believe that a safer workplace for collection employees is a safer community for everyone. Drive carefully.
