Waste Pro at a Theater Near You

In the much anticipated big screen adaptation of August Wilson’s Pulitzer Prize winning play, Fences, starring Denzel Washington and Viola Davis, a piece of history from Waste Pro’s Historical Garbage Truck Museum will play an important role. The 1952 Chevy 4400 rear-load garbage truck is driven by Washington’s character, a 53-year old Pittsburgh garbage collector.


Acquired by Waste Pro in 2012, this showpiece was found on a Kansas farm, then reconditioned in 2013, with the addition of a Leach Packmaster body. Although this truck is officially retired from service, it underwent restoration by Waste Pro’s Sanford, Florida- based fleet maintenance and restoration team and was fully functional, including all packing, dumping and sweeping mechanisms, throughout filming.
