The trash man likes to put on a show for Rylan, moving the truck's mechanical arm to the awe of the child.

During last week's trash collection though, Rylan's mother said he was upset when there was a "substitute" garbage man.

"He came inside very upset. He wouldn't wave to the driver. He wouldn't even look in his direction because it wasn't his guy. They have a special thing," Kimberly Checchia said.

"He's awesome and he's my best friend," Rylan said.

Rylan's favorite trash man was back this Tuesday and he got a big thumbs up before the driver went to the next home.
