A young boy who loves seeing his neighborhood recycling truck surprised workers with a gift before receiving a pretend hug from the truck’s claw.
Every Saturday, Emerson can’t wait to see the truck arrive outside his home, in Las Vegas, Nevada, a fun activity that started when he was very young.
He enjoys trying to work out how the giant claw works when loading the truck but is equally delighted when it offers a hug, waves at him or ‘claps’ enthusiastically.

Over the years, Emerson has struck up a friendship with the workers, so one weekend he told his parents he wanted to gift the recycling truck drivers a snack and drink for their shift.
His mom, Jessica Mae Salvatera, recorded the sweet moment he presented the drivers with the cute package, before the truck moves forward a few yards so the claw can offer a hug in return.
Emerson then waves off the drivers who wave back at him as they continue their route.
