Our trucks are more than just trash trucks. Their unique designs illustrate kmG’s commitment to making a difference in the community. When people see our trucks, we want people to be inspired. How do we do this? We show our appreciation by turning our trucks into mobile billboards with messages to support the troops, as well as creating awareness for different types of cancer. We hope to motivate thousands of those in the DMV to act!
kmG Hauling was founded on the idea to change the look and reputation of the waste management industry.Many people associated garbage trucks, trash containers and disposal companies as either old, run down or plain dirty. To change these perceptions, we conceptualized the flame design. Our flame design was first installed on our metallic green truck. By overhauling our look, we wanted to make a statement on how passionate we were about our business.
As we continue to increase our fleet, we evolve and adapt to modern, state-of-the-art methods for removing waste and using our trucks for good. Creating a captive customer base in the DMV has given us the opportunity to spread our approach and philosophy locally, and social media has broadened our reach nationally.
In creating our first awareness campaign, we painted our trucks bright pink to draw attention to breast cancer. We weren’t sure how people would react to seeing a bright pink truck driving down the street, but we were met with an overwhelming amount of positive support.
Years later, pancreatic cancer took the lives of our president Hugo Garcia’s Aunt and close family friend’s mother. To commemorate the devasting losses and honor our loved ones, we rolled out a fleet of purple trucks to create awareness of the horrible disease. In turn, social media helped us garner national recognition for the spreading the word about pancreatic cancer.
Not long after we unveiled the purple truck, Mr. Garcia was contacted by a friend who shared a story about Mathias Giordano, a local 13-year-old child battling cancer. Although we didn’t know Mathias personally, the story touched our hearts and compelled us to take action. We were honored to help bring childhood cancer awareness to the forefront for Mathias and his family by painting our trucks gold. We’re very proud to be a part of a community that supported Mathias and his family.
In this spirit, kmG has proudly partnered with Ellie’s Hats in support finding a cure for childhood cancer. To learn more about the great work they do, please go to their website at https://ellieshats.org/.
We don’t stop at just supporting cancer, we also want to show our support to our military. There aren’t enough words to justify what pride we have in our troops, and for what they do for our country. We added a black truck to our fleet to show our support.
Be it cancer awareness or supporting our troops, kmG is very proud and honored to show our support. kmG remains committed to making a difference in our communities.
