Allied waste is on the watch.

The Elderly Services Team of Naperville, Ill., together with the city's residential waste hauler Allied Waste Services held a brief ceremony in late March to introduce On the Watch, a senior safety program, and to recognize the Allied driver who inspired the program.

The concept for the program surfaced last December when Allied Waste driver Shawn Kaelin noticed that a senior citizen on his route hadn't placed her garbage on the curb for her weekly pickup. Kaelin felt something wasn't right and contacted the Naperville Police Department.

As part of the new program, Allied drivers in Naperville will report suspicious activities on their daily routes to the Naperville Police Department.

To officially launch the new program, Naperville Mayor George Pradel and the city's Elderly Services Team joined Allied Waste Services to recognize Shawn Kaelin. All 14 Naperville area Allied Waste drivers were on hand to recognize their colleague and to debut a newly designed On the Watch logo that will be displayed on Allied service trucks.
