CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Mayor Mark Mallory collected garbage Friday morning, as part of his experience of job shadowing city workers.

Mallory committed to getting a first hand look at city operations after his experience on Undercover Boss.

Since the show's taping, Mallory has worked filling potholes and sweeping streets, and has gone on a police ride along.

"It was a great experience to have. Its the kind of thing that you can only learn if you do it," said Mallory, "There are a lot of jobs in city service and I know what those jobs are from 30,000 feet and I know what the department do in general but specifically you don't know the details of those jobs and you don't know how hard those jobs are and how challenging they are."

The Undercover Boss episode featuring Mallory airs this Sunday.
