Sanitation worker retiring after 3 decades gets special surprise
A New York City Department of Sanitation worker is retiring, and he got a special surprise on his last day.
Raymond Watson has been a sanitation worker in Brooklyn for more than three decades. His daughter Beverly, who's also a sanitation worker in Brooklyn, joined him for his last day.
In all the time Watson's daughter has worked in sanitation, their paths have never crossed. To celebrate her father's final hours of collection, she hopped on in for the ride.
Beverly tells News 12 her father is an inspiration to her and part of the reason she is also in sanitation. Raymond says he was so grateful to spend his final hours on the job with his daughter.
"I was really really surprised when I came here this morning and saw all the cars. I was wondering what was going on, and then the supervisor told me the reason why they were here," said Watson.
As for what's next for Raymond, he says he doesn't know quite yet.
