A family in Melrose Park, Illinois got a special birthday surprise from Republic Services. The birthday boy and his little brother were elated when one of our trucks stopped by their house with Republic hats and a toy truck.

“The customer connected with us because their 4-year-old loves garbage trucks. For his birthday, they asked if we could stop by their house. We decided instead to throw a mini-birthday parade. The drivers were very happy to be part of this – they love their communities, customers, and make it their job to know how many kids to keep an eye out for on each block,” said General Manager Joe S.

Thank you to Joe, Scott, Jasper and Sal for teaming up to bring joy to this little boy on his big day!
