Lexington's mayor Gray took on a different role on Monday.

Jim Gray suited up, and rode around in a garbage truck as part of Waste Collector Day.

"Today we’re saying thank you!" said Gray. He urged citizens to show their appreciation to waste collectors by waving “hello,” simply thanking them, being mindful of them while driving around the trucks, or offering water on hot summer days.

Residents can help waste collectors by setting out containers properly: allowing three feet between the containers and turn the cart so the handles face away from the street. Extra cardboard for collection should be flattened, bundled and placed beside the Rosie container. Residents should also only use paper bags for yard waste. Items not fitting inside the containers should be placed next to them and vehicles should be parked away from the carts.
