“Garbage,” A Poem by Ops Supervisor Sydney B., Chicago, IL


While many sleep away the day,

Republic Services of Chicago drivers awake to slay the day.

Small can or large can, either way,

These Republic heroes are here – even on Sunday!

Now gather your trash and throw it away,

As your stinky garbage will not lead us astray,

But instead we rejoice, for our jobs are here to stay!
