A big thanks to the driver who picks up garbage cans on 19th Avenue between Arctic Boulevard and C Street.

Fighting colds, my husband and I failed to put our garbage can out, and I only remembered when I saw the garbage truck coming down the street Tuesday morning. Instead of passing our house, the truck driver stopped in front, honked his horn, and waited while my husband scrambled to find shoes and haul the garbage can to the bottom of the driveway. The driver then backed up a few feet and emptied our can into his truck before moving onto the next house.

We really appreciate the driver’s kindness. Thank you.
