WM drivers trained to be on alert

Trash and recycling truck drivers with Coast Waste Management and Waste Management of North County have been trained to watch out for suspicious activity and possible emergencies while out on their daily routes.

They recently were trained by law enforcement officials and a company security professional to act as an extra set of eyes and ears for police, fire department and emergency services while servicing their customers.

Drivers were taught key methods to observe and report suspicious activity.
