THE dreams of a three-year-old came true in Mandurah last week when the bin men came to visit.

Little Roman Hill, who was born with a heart defect, is obsessed with rubbish trucks.

His mum Becky wrote on Heart of an Empire: Roman’s Journey – a Facebook page set up to document Roman’s health journey – “something magical happened to us today”.

“Our three-year-old son Roman is obsessed with bin trucks,” she wrote.

“Literally plays with them all day, watches them on YouTube, sits in our driveways with us four times every Thursday waiting for them and even gets them painted on his face.

“Our beautiful friends called up Cleanaway asking if one of the drivers could slow down and wave.

“Three trucks and a fleet of drivers rocked up on my street to give us tours, beep the horn and teach Roman about them.”

Becky described the staff at Cleanaway as amazing.

The Cleanaway drivers were just as impressed with Roman.

Drivers Steve Jones, Ralph Baker and Nigel Lambert, with operations supervisors Brad Smith and David Francis said they’ve never met a truck fan like Roman.

“The smile on Roman’s face was unbelievable. It was a pleasure to meet such a huge truck fan, and make a wish come true,” Brad said.

Roman heads into surgery to fix a hole in his heart this week.
