Regent's Underground 660Ls

In this one we head underground again beneath a building in Kent St near the town hall. With this job there are four 660L cardboard bins to service, but you can't exactly use the lifter. You'll see the bins are situated in a room off an elevated dock and there's no ramp available to take the bins down to the truck. So the only option is to hand unload, otherwise drop them on the side and push them into the hopper like shown in the video. We also get a different angle showing the packer in action, a quick look at the truck and then a shot at the end of some city nightlife. Hope you enjoy some more action from below the CBD.

Manco SL85 Demo
A few years ago Manco Engineering brought their products over from New Zealand, with their SL85 one man collection vehicle initially the main focus. Towards the end of 2011 I spotted their demo unit in my area of Sydney while travelling to/from the tip. I quickly discovered Manly Council was giving this truck a test run; finally trying out a side loader in the rear loader dominated council. One Tuesday morning I went out to find this truck on the job and tracked it down collecting garbage in Fairlight. I followed along for quite some time, capturing plenty of pictures and videos, while also watching the new collection vehicle in operation. Unfortunately, we don’t see the truck being used to full potential, firstly because this part of Manly isn’t suited to one armers and also the operator wasn’t experienced with side loaders. There is a video of this truck under the Superiorpakfan channel which shows it being used a little more up-to-speed. I played around with the arm on this truck a while ago with a few bins and I personally thought it was pretty good, but I’d love to take one of these Mancos out for a spin on an actual run one day. I know of two of these being used in Australia... the one servicing Blacktown I would like to catch up with in the future. There are already plenty of these being used in New Zealand, so I’m sure they can be just as successful in Australia!





World Tower Underground (Bales + 660L)
I took a Friday off work and went out with one of the mates during his Thursday night run. We left the yard at 9pm and did a little loop through Ku-Ring-Gai and Ryde before heading into the Sydney CBD, then tipped off at Visy and finished up at 7am. I was tagging along on a Watts Waste cardboard recycling run which involved a white single axle Heil / Isuzu, previously belonging to PK Management before the company went bust. I'd wanted to do a full night shift for a while and finally got the opportunity, which turned out to be an awesome experience, especially being able to cruise through central Sydney. I love the darkness, flashing lights, quiet streets and roaring trucks when it comes to the night shift, but being in the city is just as awesome with all the high rise residential and commercial buildings. When you go through the CBD at ground level on the main streets you don't see much apart from some 240L bins belonging to small businesses. The back lanes are where a lot of action happens, but the serious deal is found underground, which is something I love about CBD waste collections. This night was the first time I got to go down below the busy streets and madness, with this video giving you a look at the first dock I got to see. There was plenty down there, especially those 1100Ls you get a look at on the left and then the group of 1.5m containers at the end of the first clip. All we were getting down there was a 660L and a single bale, but we threw a few extras on from another spot, so there's some sweet footage of bales getting packed by this little rear loader. We also checked out the bin room which all those loaded 1.5m bins came from - just wish I got a closer look at the compactors they get hooked up to. A Hino rear loader joined us down below during the video too, which tackled all those 1100L bins by utilising the same method shown in one of the other videos I posted of this truck.. Also hearing that Hino thunder through the dock made me wonder what an Acco would sound like :P I saw a few other trucks out and about including two Scania rear loaders belonging to Sita and Cleanaway, then also a handful of smaller trucks belonging to Dimeo, Eco Sense and Veolia. There are so many videos I want to get from the city with a very different setting down in those docks, then all the trucks that pass through intrigue me even more! I hope you guys enjoy this footage, look out for more of this little Isuzu and other Watts Waste machines. One mistake I made on that night was not getting rest beforehand... I ended up being awake for 37 hours before I got to sleep on Friday night! haha





City of Kingston Dept. of Public Works Leach Alpha Truck 11
Monday Trash Collection N. Wilbur Ave and Pine St. Crews "Scooter" and "Shady" feed Truck 11 with trash, some wood, rugs and unwanted toys. Truck 8 can also be seen in action. Truck 8 got a funky route so I don't chase this truck.





Midcoast Garbage
This video is based on the collections in the Midcoast regional waste contract, featuring one of the many JR Richards collection trucks used throughout the three involved councils. Instead of having the typical urban service on video, I aimed for some rural action, which is quite plentiful in this area of NSW. I also made it that little bit more different by targeting two islands which fall under Greater Taree City Council. I got out there first thing in the morning, arriving just before 6am, being the same time when a few of the side loaders arrived and starting picking up their first bins. After doing a little check of the Old Bar urban area for videoing later in the morning, I shot back west a little, turned down Manning Point Rd and kept driving until a bridge took me over the Manning River into Oxley Island. The truck arrived a couple of minutes earlier, but I spotted him across empty land in the distance straight away. I waited in one spot for what seemed like forever, but eventually I spotted him approaching, had a quick chat and got the green light for videos. So for around a couple of hours I followed along, choosing ideal locations for videos and very slowly I captured a handful of clips. I appreciated following this truck through the peaceful locality, where basically the only sound you hear is coming from the engine. This kind of pick up makes for a very relaxing shift - a completely different world compared to Sydney! A big thanks goes to the operator of #0691 on that Friday. During the video you will notice some areas have a single lone standing bin and in other places there might be a few bins somewhat close together. Note the cluster of bins in the fourth clip is done by some residents to save the truck driving down certain roads. Also I only remember the main road on both islands being tarmac, the rest is dirt and gravel, so you will see some good dust clouds. I hope you take the time to view a decent chunk of this video, because it is a different setting... I’m counting on that first clip catching attention =]
