David Sedaris Has Trash Truck Named After Him

pigpensedarisIn honor of his help picking up litter in the UK, the Horsham District Council has named one of their garbage trucks after author David Sedaris.

The truck was unveiled at a ceremony on July 23rd. The vehicle has a drawing of a pig on the side of it and reads “Pig Pen Sedaris: Thanks David for helping to keep the area clean.

The West Sussex County Times has more: “District councillor for Chantry Ward, Diana van der Klugt, said: ‘David Sedaris is a familiar and very welcome sight in the lanes and by-ways of this lovely part of Horsham District, as he tirelessly and painstakingly goes about gathering up the litter so thoughtlessly discarded.’” (Via The Guardian).
