NEWTON — Kenneth Green and Rob Miyoshi hit the streets of Newton four days a week donning blue vests with the words “Team Tidy” splashed across the back.
Their job is to pick up garbage in the town centre.
It may seem simple, and perhaps it is, but it means a lot to the two men.
Green has had cognitive challenges since birth and through his job tidying up trash, he’s overcoming his learning challenges.
And Miyoshi is a recovering addict, two years clean.
“It’s helped me get back on my feet,” Miyoshi said. “There’s a positive side to this for me as a person in recovery… I’ve been on both sides of the fence, and this side of the fence is a lot better.”
