CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- Dress your kids as real-life heroes this Halloween.
Hefty is honoring sanitation workers for their frontline service this Halloween by creating the "Hefty Garbage Collector" Halloween costume for kids.
While superheroes and princesses are always popular Halloween costumes, Hefty knows that there are some kids who have a passion for a "less recognized, but no less important" hero: the garbage collector.
“At Hefty, we know that garbage collectors are real-life superheroes who prove their strength and dedication every day, and our kids recognize that too when they wait at the window for them to go by each week!” said Nicole Buddin, senior brand manager at Reynolds Consumer Products, in a statement.
The best part? Hefty knows Halloween can take a toll on parents' wallets, so they have made the costume available for just $5.49—the same price as a box of Hefty Ultra Strong trash bags.
“Since our trash bags offer top-notch quality and strength for an affordable price, we are bringing that same value to Halloween, giving kids the chance to dress up as their unsung garbage collector heroes for a price parents will love," Buddin said.
Beginning Sept. 29, costumes will be available on a first-come, first-served basis at www.HeftyHalloween.com.
The limited-edition Hefty Garbage Collector Halloween costume fits most 2- to 4-year olds and comes with a reflective vest, overalls, hat, gloves and a rolling garbage bin for kids, plus a box of Hefty Ultra Strong trash bags for parents to help with post-Halloween cleanup.
Note, adult assembly is required. This product contains parts that should only be installed by adults ages 18 and up.
