On the other side of the spectrum, there are few perks for one of the city’s most thankless jobs, the men and women who work for New York City’s Sanitation Department.

Now, those workers are finally getting their time to shine with their very own calendar!

The calendar “features 14 of New York’s Strongest — uniformed sanitation workers and civilian employees who serve New York City each day and who are leading New Yorkers to contribute zero waste to landfills by 2030,” according to the department.

The calendar is available online or at New York City’s City store for $14.95.
