Sebastian, FL Toddler Starts Trash Can Retrieval Business

Three-year old Roman Kane loves garbage. He loves garbage so much that he has started his own trash can retrieval business in Sebastian, FL.

It began with Roman watching the Waste Management trucks dumping the blue and green garbage cans into the refuse trucks and progressed to his bringing the empty garbage cans back up to the side of his house. Soon he was returning all of the empty garbage cans on the family’s block.

One of the neighbors gave Roman a quarter for returning her empty garbage cans and through word of mouth many of the neighbors followed suit. Roman’s quarters now total $40.00.

Roman has also befriended the sanitation workers and of course, trash day is his favorite day of the week.
