Details of the Recognition
COEUR d’ALENE — Micah Young said he had to pause and collect himself Friday morning as he turned onto South Anne Street.
Young, an employee with Waste Management, has been collecting trash every Friday in the small Coeur d’Alene neighborhood for years, regardless of the weather. During the rainy, early-morning hours prior to Young’s final trip up the street, residents of the neighborhood worked together to show Young how much he will be missed.
A cardboard sign, with hand-painted messages of thanks, was attached to each of the 29 garbage cans lining South Anne Street:
“You’re the best!”
And so on.
“It felt good, we were really pleased to do something to let the guys know that they’re appreciated,” said Loren Mitchell, a longtime resident who helped put together the messages of gratitude.
