Saluting the Hardest Working Men in DC

Yeah, so they wake you up at 6am on trash day. Or worse they skip you and your back yard stinks for the weekend.

But what a foul city we would have without these pillars of urban civilization?

Garbage Collectors, the Trash Man, Waste Removal Technicians.

The men (and maybe women) who take away our refuse, who clean our city, who day after day are elbow deep in the foul and filth that you and I wish be gone.

Could you do the work, regardless of pay? Would you live long in a city without them?

Then do you appreciate their daily task? I do. I salute the hardest working men in Washington DC: the men feeding the garbage truck this morning.
