National Public Works Week – During National Public Works Week 2021 we’re celebrating all the ways public works play in helping to make our communities and cities great and livable places for us and our families. 

We’ve spent the last year coming together globally and increasing our gratitude for all the workers who help to keep everyone safe and healthy. In addition to all of the important nurses and doctors who have been spotlighted over the year, we’re also thanking the thousands of men and women in the U.S. who help to keep our services and infrastructure accessible for the public. 

During National Public Works Week 2021 we’re celebrating all the ways public works team members help to make our communities and cities great and livable places for us and our families. 

This week has been held to honor public works staff workers since 1960 and is sponsored by the American Public Works Association (APWA). 

The theme for 2021 is “Stronger Together” and is a call to shed light on how important it is for citizens and public workers to come together and accomplish the goals needed to make our communities successful, thriving and great places to live. 

Many municipalities have already announced they’ll be celebrating this important week with events honoring public works staff members, those who work in the public utilities and for Parks and Recreation for the services they provide. 

It’s also an important time to bring awareness and open discourse on the topic of how we can improve quality of life by coming together to plan, build, manage and operate the local community. 

Public works is also responsible for many of the local free shred days for community members and a number of other services are offered in some municipalities like curbside leaf and brush collection, bulk pickup services and many other “extras” that bring benefit to the communities they serve. 

Thank you to all public workers for your dedicated efforts. Your hard work and the important role you play in making our days run smoothly are not unnoticed.
