Tim Hortons thanks Hamilton waste collection staff

It’s a simple gesture: a hot coffee and doughnut or muffin to start the workday.

Hamilton waste collection staff enjoyed a quick pick-me-up on July 23 as their collection vehicles departed from the Burlington Street yard.

More than 100 free cups of coffee and baked goods were distributed from a Tim Hortons drive-thru trailer. The effort was organized by Tim Hortons as part of a national campaign to recognize front-line workers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Stephen Bailey, superintendent of waste collection for the City of Hamilton, said workers should be commended for their service. Tim Hortons contacted Bailey about the campaign, and he was pleased to have the trailer on site. Workers from the Burlington Street facility collect waste primarily in the lower city and parts of Flamborough.

In the early days of the pandemic, said Bailey, much attention was given to front-line health-care workers, and rightfully so. But after about a month, it became clear to the public that waste collection staff were also working tirelessly and selflessly to keep the community clean.

“People realized we haven’t skipped a beat with our services at the curb,” said Bailey. “At that time, it came a little bit more to the forefront.”

Hamilton Tim Hortons franchisee Maureen Sauvé agrees. The Sauvé family provided products and staff to support the drive-thru service on July 23. The family operates six Tim Hortons outlets in the lower city.

“Handling people’s garbage every day through a crisis had to be an intimidating thing for their workers,” said Sauvé. “And I know the adjustments that anyone who was an essential worker had to make.”

Sauvé added she’s proud to be part of a national effort by Tim Hortons franchisees to feed and fuel essential workers.

Tim Hortons regional marketing manager Scott Fischer said the mobile drive-thru initiative campaign started in March and has distributed roughly 1.5 million cups of coffee and baked goods.

“It’s really just a way of saying thanks to people who are on the front lines,” he said. “We just want to support our communities, from the beginning to the end.”
