Doing the dirty work as a pumper isn’t easy, and it can be a thankless job at times. That’s part of the reason the ServiceCore team is promoting its Hug A Pumper campaign in which people can nominate those deserving of appreciation in the liquid waste industry.

Nominees will receive a few goodies in the mail, including a Hug A Pumper hat and bumper sticker. They’ll also be featured in the Hall of Fame, entered into a drawing for a 50-inch flat-screen TV, and given a shoutout to their company on Facebook and Twitter.

“Anyone who works in the liquid waste industry can tell you it isn’t the easiest way to make a living,” said ServiceCore managing partner John Gadeken. “Hug A Pumper was created as an initiative to recognize the people in this industry and to show them that their work is appreciated.

“So if you have someone in mind who has done exceptional work, gone above and beyond, or just deserves a shoutout, then please head to and nominate them today.”

It’s worth noting that the site includes a promise that the company isn’t collecting information to market or sell you products. “That wouldn’t be very nice of us,” the site reads. “Hug A Pumper was created to show pumpers some love.”
