While superheroes and princesses are always popular Halloween costumes, there are real-life heroes in our community that deserve the same honor. This Halloween, Hefty is helping kids dress up as their real-life heroes with the new Hefty Garbage Collector costume. Plus the costume is so affordable you can dress your little one up without breaking the bank. 

Hefty Costume
To honor garbage collectors for their frontline service and give their littlest fans the chance to dress up as their heroes, Hefty is introducing the Hefty Garbage Collector costume this Halloween. Beginning Sept. 29, costumes will be available on a first-come, first-served basis at http://www.HeftyHalloween.com for just $5.49 which is the same price as a box of Hefty Ultra Strong trash bags. 


“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. “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.”

While Halloween traditions like trick-or-treating may look different this fall, Hefty wanted to give families a reason to celebrate and have fun this season. With the Hefty Garbage Collector costume, little ones everywhere can still enjoy a day to remember by dressing up as their hero.
