County Waste has partnered with us to honor those in our communities who are truly making a difference.

All throughout 2016, we will be recognizing one “hero” per month based on their inspirational feats, work helping their neighbors, and everyday passion.

This month we honor Eric Monk, a Generator Mechanic in the National Guard from Rensselaer, NY. Eric's nominator, Kaileigh, says Eric is a Sergeant in the National Guard, who works full-time for the Guard on top of doing his duty for this country.

Monk goes above in beyond in his community and his country alike. This month we salute you, Eric- thank you for everything you do!
