A Driver and Simple Acts of Kindness

At least once a week, Waste Connections drivers are in neighborhoods performing an essential environmental service:  safely removing waste.  Our drivers watch out for the little children, the elderly, the distracted, and others on their routes.

One of our drivers in Knoxville, Charlie Brown, was recently recognized for his “Simple Acts of Kindness” by reporter Brittany Tarwater of Channel WVLT 9 on November 20, 2019.  Brittany reports, “He’s known as the friendliest man in the neighborhood” and he’s helped many including a family with a very sick young boy named Cameron.
