Waste Management promotes movie at Del Oro Theatre

The local community was invited to get up close and personal with one of Waste Management’s compressed natural gas trucks Thursday. The truck was used in partnership with Paramount Pictures to promote the fourth film in director Michael Bay’s global blockbuster franchise, “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” which stars Mark Wahlberg, Stanley Tucci, and Kelsey Grammer.

Displayed on the 100 block of Mill Street at Grass Valley’s Del Oro Theatre, the truck was equipped with several technological features, and operates on a clean-burning fuel. The truck also had a special edition decal tagged on the side illustrating a “WM” truck casting the shadow of a Transformer.

Grass Valley was selected to host the truck tour events to encourage fans of the Transformers brand, and the public, to start seeing vehicles on the road a little differently in advance of the film’s release in theaters today. Prizes were given to attendees of the event throughout the night.

Unlike traditional diesel trucks, compressed natural gas vehicles reduce greenhouse gas emissions by more than 21 percent, have a quite engine, and consumes less fuel by an average of 8,000 gallons per year.
