Garbage truck fan gets ride of a lifetime

(WFIE) A Henderson, Kentucky boy has a brand new, favorite toy.

Remington Tennyson was given his very own garbage truck. Only Santa didn’t bring this toy, Remington’s friends, the sanitation workers, did.

His mom emailed the city of Henderson to sing the praises of their trash men.

She says Remington, who turns 3 in February, is really, really, really into garbage trucks. For the past several months, he waits every Wednesday for it to stop at his house.

The sanitation works have sparked a friendship with Remington. They’ll chat with him and listen as he tells them which bins to empty.
