FRESNO, Cali. (KSEE) - Meet Frank Diaz, Fresno city garbage man. Everyday, he loads into his truck, drives through neighborhoods and picks up trash with pride.
It's his job, his livelihood, and his passion.
"I love the community, everything that we do is for the community, I grew up in Fresno."

"He shows me that things are going to be okay."
