Caballero said Tuesday morning He and his crew hit the roads early because they have a big day ahead of them New Braunfels sanitation employees work an average of IO hours a day four days a week Usa job that most people would just as soon leave to someone else but these three men are pretty pleased with their jobs You've got your ups and you've got your downs but it s OK Everything works out in tho end Caballero said Mata has been at the job for ll years He keeps up with Sanders a' they trot from trash can to trash can before the sun rises Once the truck is full and on its way to the landfill sanders laughs With this job I don t "It's pretty hairy right now because of the leaves.

Caballero said He doesn t mind the early work hour1- say ng they give him more time to spend with his two children I get to be with them in the afternoon and I can help them with their homework " he said By Tuesday afternoon the two other men in Caballero s crew aren't quite as quick as they were in the morning After about lunch time they >lack off a little bit Caballero said about the two men running through their route's job? thing in the morning He was right By Tuesday afternoon Mata and Sanders had slowed their pace and when they returned their truck to the city public works yard they looked beat Caballero s job isn t always easy either He has to contend with inattentive drivers, yapping dogs and the occasional little old lady who likes to scold the men if her garbage cans are knock ed over or if there is trash scattered in their yard And then there are the seasons Caballero Mata and Sanders agreed that this is ideal garbage-hauling weather — ideal except for the leaves "It s pretty hairy right now because of the leaves Sometimes they garbage dumpers will put out 20 or 30 bags ' he said .And the traffic isn't always that easy to deal with the driver said First of all he has to put up with the smell from the garbage truck i'm pretty used to it he said adding that it wasn't too bad Tuesday morning Sometimes it ll get to me. especially after someone goes fishing and decides to throw all their waste away " But the most irritating thing about driving a garbage truck is the way other drivers whip around Caballero said "I don’t know if people are in a hurry or what, but they won t stop for us " he said "With this /ob, I don't have to worry about exercising Sometimes, in the summer, I get so hot, I think I'm lust going to fall off that truck " Thomas Sanders New Braunfels Wednesday Herald-Zeitung October 7, 1987 25 Cents >4    *4 .c •da St ‘.tov Braunfels Texas ’8’ 30 (USBS 377 800 wo Sections 24 Pages Bradberry says Another school warranted with NBISD growing Flame thrower < im igr a tai rf! tofts g<> tMjt lo the ma jorrtlr* from ti a* New Braunfels High Nt bool hand who all received S I Milton ratings on !ht»ir n<*!o per formanee* Saturday lr.
