Nature of Work

The fundamental reason this classification exists is to operate garbage packers, truck-mounted trash loaders, and other refuse collection vehicles in order to service the Sanitation Department’s customers.  Sanitation Truck Drivers serve as the leader of a crew consisting of a driver and two service maintenance workers; drivers are responsible for setting the pace of work and ensuring the safety of the crew and the public. Major work responsibilities may include: operating sanitation vehicles; serving as the lead worker for work crew; performing preventative maintenance checks; communicating with customers and the public; and assisting in the performance of manual labor.  Although routes are assigned by supervisors, Sanitation Truck Drivers are responsible for ensuring the assigned route is completed in a timely manner.  Work is performed with limited immediate supervision and requires drivers to exercise independent judgement while on routes. Supervision is received from the Refuse Collection Supervisor.
