From Pacifica Tribune, Letters-to-the-editor, 12/20/2011, "Thank you, Recology".
"Editor: I'd like to thank Chris Porter of Recology for helping out last minute with a secret romantic surprise I had for my wife. Yesterday we received a long-awaited kitchen range by freight. I had the old range in the back of my truck and I wanted to drop it off at the recycling yard so my wife would not see it when she got home from work. I headed over to the recycling yard but it was closed. As I passed the Recology main office on the way home I spotted Chris just as she was leaving work for the day. I explained the situation, asked for her help adding it was for love and romance and she let me drop off the old stove in the adjacent garbage truck garage.
I'd like to thank Chris Porter and Recology for helping me pull off a wonderful romantic surprise for my hard-working wife who was so delighted when I told her the how Ms. Porter and Recology helped out in the surprise she wife insisted on emailing a personal thank you to Chris which included a photo of the Mandarin Orange Chicken with Olives she was baking in her new shiny oven. Thankfully, our waste haulers, like Chris Porter, are hopeless romantics! Happy Holidays."
