We were sickened to hear of the Recology driver who was hit by a car while making his rounds in Pacifica. Apparently the car's driver was texting when she hit the Recology worker, who suffered major life-threatening injuries requiring a double amputation.
Recology general manager Chris Porter says, "Please stress the importance of driving the speed limit. There seems to be lots of speeding, especially in the Fairmont area (Gateway), with people feeling they are near the highway so they can drive those speeds. Everyone knows what day garbage day is in their neighborhood. Please respect the job they are doing for you and slow down when you go by the truck. A small hello, especially during this time, would go a long way with my guys during this sad time."
