Mesquite, TX - December 21, 2018 - Today, the City of Mesquite recognized Solid Waste employee Juan Caballero for demonstrating the true meaning of the holiday season. Juan stopped his trash truck and got out to come to the aid of a resident. She was struggling with getting a wheelchair out of her car for her husband. Juan assisted her and then went about his route to collect trash. He thought nothing of the good gesture. However, the resident did. She took the time to send a note (mailed with Santa stamp) to the city acknowledging the kind heart of Juan. Through his genuine efforts to provide customer service, Juan is an example of our C.A.R.E. (Citizens. Attitude. Respect. Ethics.) message that is reflected in our workforce. Juan truly embodies the spirit of the season.
