PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) - A recycling truck driver in suburban Phoenix is being credited with saving a kitten from the trash.

Angelo Almendarez was collecting containers along his Peoria route Friday when he heard a strange sound coming from the back of his truck - a kitten’s meow.

A city spokeswoman says the kitten is a male orange tabby estimated to be less than 3 weeks old.

Phoenix TV station KPHO reports the kitten has been adopted by an employee of Peoria’s Streets Division.

This isn’t Almendarez’s first rescue. He recently saved a black kitten from the same predicament.
