Trash TV: Sidney Torres and his Trashmen Debut on TLC

Premieres Thursday, February 11 at 10 PM (ET/PT)

New Orleans garbage man Sidney Torres is proof that trash makes for good TV. Torres is famous for managing to do what no one else has - cleanup after the massive parties on New Orleans' world famous Bourbon Street - and look good doing it. Now, the city's own "Rembrandt of Refuse" shows the world how he gets it done in TLC's new pilot TRASHMEN, premiering Thursday, February 11 at 10 PM (ET/PT) just in time for Mardi Gras weekend.

The hour-long episode features Sidney and his trash troops keeping it clean on Halloween weekend, one of the busiest of the year in the Big Easy. Tens of thousands of people pack Bourbon Street, while another 100,000 more flock to Voo Doo Fest, a major annual outdoor concert. To cap off the busy weekend, the New Orleans Saints will be playing on Monday Night in the Super Dome - yet another big job for Sidney's crew. These are huge demands for his upstart company and he relies on his trusted team to pull it off. With his best friend, Lenny Kravitz, headlining Voo Doo Fest, which Sidney is also tasked to keep clean, he works to find balance between his life and work. Sidney's reputation is on the line as everyone from city officials to local residents are depending on Sidney to leave the place spotlessly clean.

TRASHMEN is produced by Michael Hoff Productions on behalf of TLC. Executive producers are Michael Hoff and Ashley Adams.

About Sidney Torres

Sidney has become a rock star in the world of refuse in the last four years. As a hotel developer, Sidney was set to start construction on a 70-unit condominium project in New Orleans on August 29, 2005, the very day that Hurricane Katrina devastated the city. Once the storm hit, Torres switched gears. Eyeing the opportunity for waste and debris removal, he bought a garbage truck and started his own company, SDT Waste and Debris. Four years later SDT Waste has over 150 trucks, 180 employees and a business model that is spreading like wildfire.

Torres is an entrepreneur fulfilling the American Dream and his success has been featured in national and international media including the Wall Street Journal, CNBC, New York Times, Forbes, Smart Money and NPR. Connect with Torres at www.sidneyt.com or on twitter at twitter.com/sidneydtorres.
