Story about a local Castlegar boy who had his dream come true for Halloween.

Chason Hartland from Castlegar dressed up as a garbage man on Halloween and even got a visit from a real sanitation truck.

Our son, Chason Hartland, age 3 1/2, is absolutely obsessed with garbage trucks and asked to be a garage man for Halloween so we thought how fun it would be if we could make him a garbage truck to go in – so we did!!

 

We stopped our local garbage man, Dave Parker, and explained about the costume we were going to make and asked if he could contribute in any way and he gave us some Waste Management stickers and hats to help with the costume.  Once the costume was complete we emailed Waste Management with some pictures and asked if they would be willing to bring the garbage truck to our house on Halloween day so we could take a picture of Chason, the garbage man and the big garbage truck and they were more than happy to make this little boy’s dream come true.  We have had so  many comments on the costume and have been told numerous times that is was the best costume people have seen this year!!

 

A big thanks to Dave Parker, Doug Lewis and Paul Steenvoorden of Waste Management in Castlegar.
