“We recently moved in to a community where we have trash and recycling service. I have a 3 year old son and he thinks any kind of heavy duty equipment is the coolest thing ever. One day as one of our drivers, Lance, was completing his pick up, we walked outside to watch. I didn't expect anything other than maybe having him wave at us and continue on his route. Much to my pleasant surprise, he stopped the truck, introduced himself and engaged my son in conversation, concluding in a high 5. Watching the two trucks do the pick-
Alonzo López (SBC Waste Services)
“I am an elderly homeowner at the above address. This morning, I was struggling getting my waste bin down my icy driveway as your truck approached. The driver saw me, stopped and left his truck to lend assistance. I am so impressed by his friendly service and he should be commended. He could have easily driven past to the next stop in the route. Then, I would have missed the pickup. Thank you for his efforts. Much appreciated.”
The above message was relayed to the Village of Bloomingdale. We asked SBC if they would be willing to provide the employee name for consideration for the BCCC Random Act of Character Award. S.B.C. provided Alonzo’s name and responded that he has been doing this for 20 years, and he is a great guy!
On January 18, another resident called to compliment Alonzo. The forgot to put out their trash & recycle carts because of the holiday they thought service would be 1 day late, but the driver (Alonzo) walked up to his garage to retrieve the trash cart and rendered service. The resident stated he very much appreciated his driver doing this to ensure he was serviced on his scheduled day.
