Manuel Figueroa

Street Maintenance Service Worker

With seven years now on the Streets Crew, I’m known as the recycling buff. I recycle all my co-workers’ aluminum and plastic.

There have been challenging work days on the job—especially during the tsunami. There was also the time that someone drove their car into our concrete and we had to push them out!

I came to Public Works because I wanted to work for the City that I grew up in and love. I enjoy working outside and operating heavy equipment.

Every day I try to find something to laugh about and some time for making music— rap music that is!
