Rear Load Driver Scott O. was on route when he came across a small puppy’s head sticking out from underneath a garbage dumpster he was about to service. Much to his surprise, he found three puppies that had been abandoned and set out near the dumpster in a cardboard box. The frisky pup had managed to find a way out and all three were huddled under the dumpster for warmth and shelter. After 15-minutes of coaxing, they scurried out into his arms.
“I’ve been a driver for Republic Services for two years. I was just doing the right thing. I would like to think anyone in this position would have done the same,” said Scott.
