JENKS — A unique friendship has blossomed out of a weekly trash pick up in Jenks.

Every Thursday morning, around 7 a.m. 3-year-old Myles Henrichs hears the honking from the American Waste Control truck and runs up to say, "Hello".

This relationship started a few months ago.

When Aaron Mitchell picks up trash at the Henrich's house in Jenks, he’d wave to Myles.

Since, it has escalated to a high five, hug, and conversation.

This week, Myles' mom, Amanda Henrichs, said he was gifted with a surprise.

"This past Thursday, they surprised Myles and brought him a huge garbage truck, which he absolutely loved. It was kind of above and beyond any expectations that I’ve ever had," Henrichs said.

This gift was done by Mitchell's own generosity.
