“Thanks, Republic. What a week we’ve had in Northern IL, huh?!

As always, you guys do a great job. My normal pickup day is Friday and it was no problem and completely understandable that you couldn’t get here to collect it!

Please pass the city’s thanks along to your drivers for coming out on Saturday, yet another day with more accumulated snow, to pick up the residents’ trash and recycle items! We know it couldn’t have been easy at all.”

Just another day on the job for Residential Drivers Anthony A. and Luis J. But for the customer they helped, it was so much more. Check out this letter sent to the Fresno Bee:

“When you have a problem with your trash pickup, you usually blame the driver. Well, never again.

On a recent, early, cold morning, I woke to the sound of my neighbor calling for help. He had fallen in the garage after putting his trash can out. He could not get up, and I was not able to help. As I stood there, I heard the garbage truck coming.

I flagged down Driver Anthony A. and asked for his help. He parked his truck and offered to help but wasn't able to lift my neighbor up. We heard the second truck coming, and he told me to get the other driver. I did and Luis J. parked his truck and asked where he could help. The two of them were able to lift my neighbor and help him to his walker, then to his door and then they were gone.

Disguised as trash truck drivers, our two angels, Anthony and Luis, drove off in their big blue trucks.

God bless you, Anthony and Luis, for stopping and helping a stranger in need.”

"Today, I witnessed one of your drivers going the extra mile for your customers. They must have forgotten it was trash day, and their driver parked his truck, walked up their driveway and brought it back down to his truck and emptied it...... way to go, driver!"
