Our two new garbage trucks now have names! 

Mommy and Trash-O-Saurus Rex are the winning names.

These names were shortlisted from around 1,500 submissions, and then selected in a second round of voting by the residents of Nanaimo. The winning names were put forth by two young Nanaimo residents; Nathan aged 4 and Hudson aged 2.

The competition winners along with their families were invited to the Public Works yard for the official naming ceremony. The names were unveiled by Mayor Bill McKay and City CAO Tracy Samra to a big round of applause. The Trucks will proudly bear their new names for their whole life here at the City of Nanaimo.

Thank you to everyone who entered a name and voted for their favorite.
