Big Smiles Behind Masks, North Bend, WA

November 30, 2020

Thanks to our North Bend team for making a birthday extra special for Stellan. When Municipal Manager Russell J. heard how much this young boy loves the recycle truck, he immediately went into planning a surprise visit from one of our trucks on his special day.  Russell coordinated the truck driven by Brent W., and included his team, Natalie C. and Carla J. to join the celebration with balloons and a birthday banner.  “This was a very uplifting experience for the entire neighborhood. Even the older couple across the street who haven’t been able to visit family or friends was able to enjoy the celebration from a safe distance, which was pretty special,” said Russell.  Other children on the street also got to share in the excitement.  One boy drew a picture of the truck as his gift.  The birthday boy, Stellan, was so excited and will have a special memory of this day for a long time.
