On the 4th of July I thought that he wouldn’t pick up so I didn’t put the trash out – he was nice enough to ring the door bell so we wouldn’t miss pick up.

My name is Jackie Vollmer; I live at 2571 Seiler Road, Alton, IL with my husband Jerry. I’m not sure who our garbage man is but I wanted you to know how much we appreciate him. Last week we did not realize the trash would be collected on the July 4th holiday and so did not have it out by the curb. I had one of the dogs out in the yard and realized he was at our neighbors’ house and would be heading our way.

I ran around the front of the house to the side door to put the dog back in and run the trash out to the curb. The truck was heading past our driveway and saw me running to get the trash out. He backed up and came back to collect our garbage. I REALLY appreciated it and told him that I did. He did not have to come back but he did. He is a very nice, helpful and genuine man and my husband and I very much appreciate his efforts.

I wanted you to  know as I am sure you generally only hear negative comments about your employees as overall, society now a-days tends to look for the worst in people rather than the best. I have heard very good feedback about your employees who run the route on West Bender in Moro from my parents as well. You apparently take care to hire quality people for a not very desirable job.  Thank you for your efforts in that regard as well.  Robert Sanders will always be our choice for a sanitation company and we would recommend your company highly to anyone!

If you would be so kind as to let me know the gentleman’s name, I would appreciate the opportunity to let him know again how much I appreciated his going above and beyond to collect our garbage last week
