New York, NY, March 27, 2017— The Action Environmental Group, the longtime, official solid waste, and recycling provider for the Yankees, have decked out one of their trucks with the teams' logos as a tribute to NYC's baseball team.
In honor of the beginning of baseball season, the truck officially hit the road today, replacing Action’s standard trucks on the select routes throughout the Bronx. Throughout the season, the Action truck will drive its route in Manhattan and of course parts of the Bronx so that fans of the Yankees can see it and cheer on their teams.
Action Environmental Group CEO Ron Bergamini, said, “We’ve enjoyed working with the Yankees for all of these years and thought this would be a great way to pay tribute to the team that calls New York City home.”
Leeroy Freeman, driver of the Yankees Action truck said, “I see a lot of people looking, staring, smiling, waving- they’re going by but slowing down as soon as they see the Yankees sign.” He added, “It makes me feel like I’m a part of the team.”
"We have a long-standing relationship with Action Carting with the branded truck program a feature of our Partnership," said Doug Behar, New York Yankees Senior Vice President of Stadium Operations. "We will continue to work with Action to enhance its leading brand, especially for the mutually successful sustainable programs we have jointly developed."
Action will run weekly social media contests for fans that spot the truck out on the road, with a chance to win tickets to Yankees games. Contest dates and rules can be found by following @ActionCarting on Twitter.
