Your Responsibility – Drivers are on the front-lines of a company’s distribution chain and – as a result –
have the responsibility to keep track of plastics. Make sure that you collect any reusable containers left
from previous deliveries and let your supervisor know if a second pickup is needed. Also, if you see
something, say something. If you see an unauthorized person handling or stealing company plastics,
collect as many details about the incident as you can and report immediately to your supervisor.
Bad Alternatives – Company’s such as yours utilize reusable plastics because they are durable and easy
to clean. When containers are lost, your company may be forced to evaluate cheaper options that
create a bigger hassle for drivers such as cardboard boxes – a pain in the rain.
