For many years I have been concerned about the safety of trash men and women riding on the back of waste disposal trucks. These folks risk their lives when they hop on those trucks without protection.

I recommend that the city provide a support system such as you see on parade floats during the Christmas season. The circular bars would at least give them some support.

Please give this your immediate attention before our city loses one of these folks who falls off and dies.
