It was the color, of the dumpster, that caught my eye. However, the photo also provided a post title. Zoom in and you will see the tag line for RJ Waste and Recover is “let’s talk trash”.
My personal contribution to trash talk is a story about my college years. One of my jobs was as a sanitation engineer. I started out “rolling trash cans” and worked my way up to truck driver.
A Google search found an article which explains the choice of pink. Their website says:
“We think Pink. This is a personal and important part of our corporate philosophy and business model. Think Pink and Mean Green’ philosophy, the company has a focus on cancer awareness, specifically breast cancer, and donates 10 percent of profits to organizations related to this cause.”
Following is a link to RJ Waste and Recover website. Also, we are sharing a link to the original of today’s photo saved on Flickr with the caption: A trash dumpster painted in pink found in uptown Charlotte.
