Truck / Vehicle – Peck

Truck / Vehicle

The year was 1968, and Walter Leck was seventeen years old and working as a farm hand on a local farm. One day the owner of a local trash company in Newtown, Pennsylvania approached him. The owner asked Walter if he would be interested in working as a laborer on the back of his garbage truck. It sounded like a great opportunity because the pay was .50 ¢ more hourly then he was currently making. Walter decided that it was time to make a career move and start his new life as a garbage man.
