A ‘Misty-Eyed’ Mom Thanks Driver in Delmar, DE

July 21, 2020

We all know how much kids love our garbage trucks and drivers! A couple of young fans in Delmar recently were treated to an up-close look at one of our trucks, thanks to Driver Jeff P.

Jeff’s simple act of kindness didn’t go unnoticed …

“I want to commend one of your drivers, Jeff P. My little kids have marveled at the Republic Services truck ever since we moved to our house in DE. Literally, trash day is our favorite day. Jeff made a little boy’s dream come true today when he briefly stopped so the kids could look at the truck up close. I’m getting all misty-eyed recalling how sweet he was to my children. Please let him know how much that meant to us.”

Thank you, Jeff, for bringing joy to these kids! Our guess is that they’re still talking about their special day!
