Birthday Haul

Every kid has his or her ideal birthday motif: Star Wars, Justin Bieber, Phineas & Ferb. But now trendsetting kids can celebrate their big day with a whole new theme: garbage collection.

Advanced Disposal has launched a contest in Columbia, S.C., it calls “Truck on Over to My Birthday Party,” which will send one of the company’s trucks and its driver, along with a package of garbage-themed invitations, favors, and games, to help a child pull off a truly unique birthday fete. To compete for this lofty honor, parents must craft an engaging YouTube video explaining precisely why their child wants a large, trash-filled vehicle at an otherwise festive occasion. Admittedly, the idea of being able to dispatch that whiny neighbor kid who wipes his boogers on everyone by placing him in the garbage hopper is oddly compelling.

More information about the contest can be found on the company’s Facebook page. Note to the winning family: Serve the cake and ice cream upwind.
