Show Your Support for Front Line Workers by Giving 6 Feet of Space

We want to thank our customers for their support and interest in the work SPU does out in the field working to keep clean water in our taps, our curbside waste collected, and sewers flowing. Needless to say, SPU’s essential Front Line staff are Front Line Heroes!

To show your support for SPU staff and contractors, we ask that you give workers at least 6 feet of space when you see them in the field, at the transfer stations, and in your community. This is a vital step in stopping the spread of this virus in addition to wearing a face covering when you are at any indoor or outdoor public space where you may be within 6 feet of someone who does not live with you. By following these guidelines, SPU staff and contractors can safely do their essential work repairing sewer lines, fixing water breaks, reading meters, and picking up your recycling, garbage, food and yard waste. This is both for the health and safety of the Front Line staff as well as your own protection.

If you’d like to show your appreciation and connect with our Front Line workers, there are a number of ways you can do so. Creating and displaying a nice message of gratitude can go a long way. If you want to give our team a shout out or a nice message of thanks on social media, you can use the hashtag “#ThankYouSPUFrontLine” and we’ll share with our staff.

Thank you for your support at this time and please remember, when you see us in the field: 

  • Give at least 6 feet of space 
  • Wear a face covering when you are at any indoor or outdoor public space where you may be within 6 feet of someone who does not live with you.
  • Show your support with a sign or online with #ThankYouSPUFrontLine 
  • Keep waste in carts and bag extras
  • Don’t flush wipes or other garbage down your pipes causing excess stress on our sewer, pump stations, and staff
