    Spending a day as a Garbage Truck Man has always been a personal dream of Mahalo Daily co-host Lon Harris, a dream which he was able to fulfill, courtesy of the L.A. Bureau of Sanitation. We went on a ride-along with Louis Mereno, a Sanitation Services truck driver and pick-up guy for heavy, illegally dumped items in the South Central Los Angeles area, to see what his typical day consisted of. As Lon finds out, it’s a lot of heavy lifting, questionable odors, and some interesting finds.
