MIAMI, OK.--- A bright pink garbage truck is now making its way through the city's trash pick-up routes. The truck was purchased in order to support breast cancer awareness throughout the community. City officials say the bright color ensures safety by citizens seeing it going down the streets. 

"It's good to see everybody smile and see you coming down the road, especially kids like it," said Zeb Burt, City of Miami Trash Collector.

The city also has a bright yellow truck making its way through neighborhoods. Trash collectors say they hope to get more bright colored trucks in the future.
