Arizona man and recycling truck driver Angelo Almendarez was collecting containers along his route on Friday when he discovered a kitten had been thrown out with the recyclables.

Almendarez originally heard a strange sound coming from the back of his truck: a kitten’s meow. According to a city spokesperson, the kitten was a male orange tabby less than 3 weeks old.

An employee of Peoria’s Streets Division has reportedly adopted the kitten, who is now eating from a bottle.

According to Almendarez, this isn’t the first kitten he’s rescued from the trash.
