“The Most Friendly Garbage Man Ever” in Huntington Beach, CA

Trash day is the best day of the week for 7-year-old Dillon in California. Dillon takes out the trash every Tuesday so he can see his pal, Driver Carlos. Dillon gives Carlos Gatorade and helps him move nearby trash containers that are too close to cars. In a note from Dillon’s mom, she wrote:

“Carlos is the most friendly, generous garbage man ever. Carlos and Dillon have a very special relationship and it shows. Carlos has been very generous and has given Dillon Republic Services swag, a toy trash truck, coloring books, among other things.  This last week, Dillon found a surprise on our door and we all couldn't believe our eyes.  The very amazing Carlos had given Dillon his very own youth shirt, similar to the one he wears, with Dillon’s name embroidered on it, along with a hat with his name on it. I just wanted to take the time to give Carlos accolades for a job well done! We appreciate all he does and his job does not go unnoticed.”

A big shout-out to Carlos for your kindness – truly above and beyond!
