If there’s one thing “Parks and Recreation” has made abundantly clear over five seasons, it’s that Leslie Knope can rock any job put in front of her. Tomorrow night’s episode, “Women in Garbage,” puts that idea to the test as Leslie spends a day (with April) working as a trash collector, all to prove a point to the male-dominated Pawnee government that there should be more civil service jobs open to the women of the town.

In this scene – exclusive to HitFix for the next few hours – we see Leslie and April gearing up for their shift as garbage women, with Leslie approaching the task the way she does everything, and April realizing this is a job she might actually like.

“Women in Garbage” airs tomorrow night at 8:30 Eastern on NBC. It’s a very funny episode that also features Andy and Ben trying to teach Tom how to play basketball, and Ron playing babysitter to his girlfriend Diane’s two young daughters. Enjoy.
