I would like to let you know how much we appreciate the men that pick up our trash each  week.  They put pride into their work which makes a customer very happy.  They always always remove the trash without leaving anything behind, put the cans/lids back in the yard and say Hi/wave if we are in sight.  This is the first time I felt the need to inform the sanitation department in a email on how well their employee's are doing.  In the past we would put the trash out and it was picked up.  The trash was always picked up however there were times trash was left on lawn, cans thrown sometime on yard and other times left in street if they didn't hit the yard, lids were lost constantly. But no concern because we paid for them to remove our trash and that is what they did.   Now I have  witnessed  employee's  taking pride in their work which is very 
difficult to find, especially it being a less than attractive job but a very important job.  I have called and spoke to someone about these two men but it just didn't feel to be enough considering they are the ones that help make or break a company.  
My main point is they do a fantastic job, take time to do it right but move quickly.  There are many pick cans out there and now I know why.  Please pass on because I don't always catch them and I want them to know they have been notices doing a very good job and that is is appreciated.

Congratulations on finding your good employee's  I hope your company continues to hold such high standards

I wanted to give you guys a kudos today! We have used your service for almost a year now. We live at **** Ct off S Main and the crew is always on time and polite when putting back the cans (we've had past companies we come home from work and our driveway is blocked by a thrown trash can). Well today, we forgot to put the trash out and I heard them coming down the other road and hurried to get the trash out.
Little did I know, they already came down my road. They still stopped in and got it .. AND .. Might I add I have a 3 year old little girl who on every Monday morning counts the pink trash cans until the pink truck comes. This morning she watched the swoop in. The gentleman were very polite giving her big waves and beep beep and it brightened her day up more than you can ever imagine. In a world where complaints seem to dominant, I just wanted to say you guys are doing a great job. The simple things mean more than you could ever imagine!

3/21 I just wanted to say thank you and please pass this thank you along to whoever picks up the trash on our route. We have been doing some home renovation and had an unfortunate accident with our septic. I tried to do the best making what we are throwing away manageable. You guys do a great job and I want you to know you are appreciated. If they didn't come at 4:30 a.m. I would tell the men myself! I hope you all have a terrific Easter and again thank you for being so helpful in a "tough" trash time! God Bless!

3/4  To Whom It May Concern: Here is my bill and check.  Thank You so much for your business.  Your guys do such a good job.  God bless them.  Please tell them that for us.  Keep up the good work.  -  from a customer on our Thursday route in Walnut Hills

April 17 2015 "I watched the big pink garbage truck come down the street this morning, and collect the trash. The gentlemen collecting the trash took care to completely empty the trash cans and also gently set them back on the driveway so they didn't blow away.

  • Thank you so much for your service!   We are new to Garbage Guys Who Care, and we are already impressed!   We don't have a pink can, so our trash was accidentally over-looked last night.   I called to get it checked out, and we had a driver here in 15 minutes to pick up our trash!    He even wheeled our empty trash can back to our house!     I am highly impressed and will recommend your service to anyone in the area. 

    Thank you, Garbage Guys Who Care!"

    THANK YOU SARA !!!!!!

Comments : "I want to put in a good word for your trash pickup team when they were picking up my neighbors trash this morning. While your team was transferring his trash to the pink truck, some debris landed on the street. My neighbor hadn’t done a good job of loading his trash can which is why debris ended up on the street. Anyway, your person took the time to clean up the trash that fell on to the street. We think he was a very conscientious individual to do that. It’s nice to know you have reliable people like him working for you. Unfortunately, I’ve seen other companies that were not so trustworthy as yours."

Thanks for the kind words, the guys work long hard hours in all sorts of weather, and we seemingly only hear if there is a problem.  Very refreshing to hear a positive comment!

Mansfield News Journal 10-6-12
MANSFIELD -- The husband of a Mansfield woman who lost her battle with breast cancer in 1996 continues to promote breast cancer awareness, especially during the month of October.

This is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Dave Kracker said there are several events for the public to participate in, but his real goal is to promote self-examination and mammograms.

"We've pushed for extended hours for mammograms in October, courtesy of Women's Care, MedCentral Imaging and MedCentral/Shelby," Kracker said.

Women's Care, 500 S. Trimble Road, will have evening hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays, Oct. 9, 11, 16 and 18.

MedCentral Women's Imaging Center, 335 Glessner Ave., will have extended evening hours on Thursdays, Oct. 11 and 25, and Saturdays with daytime appointments today and on Oct. 27. MedCentral/Shelby Hospital, 20 Morris Road, Shelby, will have extended hours every Tuesday in October, and also on Saturday, Oct. 13 and 20.

"Women who catch breast cancer before it metastasizes have a much greater chance of living cancer-free," Kracker said.

The A+ for Awareness 5K Run or 1K Walk will be at North Central State College this today, and sponsored by the Student Nurses Association. Proceeds benefit the Pat Kracker Fund.

Registration is from 8 to 8:45 a.m. with the race at 9 a.m. Go to for more information.

The Blueberry Patch in Lexington will have pink items and refreshments, the signature color of Breast Cancer Awareness, on Oct. 19 and 20 with a portion of the proceeds also going to the fund. According to its website, the fund was established with the help of the local Planned Parenthood Association, the public and local business donors.

In January 2009, the fund became affiliated with the Mansfield Cancer Foundation, Mansfield/Ontario/Richland County Health Department, American Cancer Society and Susan G. Komen for the Cure Northeast Ohio affiliate to further extend breast cancer education, support and assistance to Richland County residents.

Kracker said many local organizations have made efforts to support the foundation, including the new business Garbage Guys Who Care.

"This is a beginning garbage route, currently involving just one pink truck," Kracker said. "Steve Cobb is the owner of this new business and he is committing a portion of his profit to our fund.

"Another novelty involved here is that he recognizes our fund on all his invoices, including the phone number that persons can call for assistance. This was something he came up with totally on his own, just because he's a caring person."
