Sanitation Worker Jobs

Sanitation Worker Overview


The exact duties of a sanitation worker can vary from task to task, but they are most often people who work to clean or dispose of waste in a way that is hygienic. Sanitation workers may collect trash or work in facilities like wastewater treatment plants. The salary can vary as much as the tasks themselves. Rarely do sanitation worker jobs require a college degree.

Sanitation Worker Education Requirements


The field of sanitation workers is open to anyone, even those who did not finish high school. All that is required is the physical ability to lift semi-heavy objects. Short-term, on-the-job training is provided to most new hires. Some specific tasks might require higher levels education. The field is certainly open to those with higher education degrees, but they are not required. In addition, customer service and computer skills can also be highly beneficial in finding work.

Sanitation Worker Job Market


The job market for sanitation workers is expected to grow by 16 percent by 2022, resulting in an annual increase of 4,930 jobs per year. This is roughly the average growth for most careers. Given the necessity of sanitation workers, the job market can be tied closely to population levels and increases. Sanitation workers often find employment by city governments as well as hospitals, universities and other facilities.

Sanitation Worker Salary


The average wage of a sanitation worker can vary greatly depending on what they do every day. A janitor at a grocery store, for instance, might make only $12 an hour. A sanitation worker that works for a major metropolitan city might make as much as $72,000 per year depending on the area. Sanitation workers responsible for more dangerous tasks, such as wastewater treatment, tend to make more money than their counterparts with less risky jobs due to hazard pay.
