Unsung Hero #146

Tom from Cousins Carting as an unsung hero. I noticed recently he comes to my house for trash and recycling pickups later and later. I realized that with everyone staying at home during the pandemic, plus the amount of online items arriving in boxes, he must be overwhelmed.

I asked him about the amount of garbage he is dealing with. He just smiled, shook his head and rolled his eyes.

Tom of Cousins Carting.

He has to be exhausted. I know my trash has increased, especially recycling with all of the boxes. I can’t imagine what we would do without him. The lines at the transfer station would be backed up for miles. I truly appreciate his hard work.

Thanks, Karin. I’m sure Tom and Cousins Carting are not the only refuse workers whose loads — and hours — have increased enormously. Let’s give them all a hand (in more ways than one). I’m sure a few extra bucks would not hurt either.

    Tom is the absolute best! Thank you for taking the time to recognize him.

  2. I agree completely !! Tom has been an unsung hero to me for the ten years I have been back in Westport.
    Glad that he is being appreciated!!

    Cusins Carting are good people. I have been using their services for many years. I would suggest that instead of loadilng their company up with extra recyclables and trash, that one makes an extra trip to the Transfer Station. This Westport facility is well run, with good social distancing.

  4. I THINK YOU’VE ALSO WRITTEN UP TOM’S COUSIN, BILLY MALONE, ANOTHER UNSUMG HERO. I WOULD BE AT A LOSS WITHOUT HIM . . .

    Tommy is the best!! We have used him for years! He always has a smile on his face and our dog Fern always barks when she hears his truck as he always has two treats for her. He is amazing!
