BROOKLYN - A father and son duo is on the job in Sunset Park with the city's Department of Sanitation, just as one enters retirement and the other enters the workforce.

Kevin Brothers was joined by his son, Richard, during his final route on household garbage collection after 20 years. His newly hired son got to learn the trade firsthand from his dad as he began his first day on the job.

The Brothers are Staten Island residents, but have been and will be covering the same Brooklyn garage out of Sunset Park.
