For Immediate Release

LAKE CITY, FL – June 1, 2021 – Waste Pro Helper Joel Grecian recently received a ‘Franklin’ Award of $100 after a customer wrote a letter thanking him for going above and beyond.

Lake City resident Brian had difficulty setting his yard waste out on a recent collection day in May. During his route, Grecian took the time to stop and explain to Brian how to properly set it out. Then, later that day, he went back to Brian’s home on his own time to personally help set it out.

“We only had a brief interaction but Joel’s positive attitude for the job and customer stood out,” Brian wrote in his letter.

In addition to his Franklin, last year Grecian also won Waste Pro’s $5,000 Safety Award for helpers who go three years without an at-fault safety incident. Lake City Office Manager Vanessa Kramer also shared he has never called out sick in his five years on the job.

“We get compliment calls on Joel at least once a week,” Kramer said.
