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.

4th Of July Hopper Footage - Monday Pt. 3
Part 3 is a fun one, lots of bulk and odd items. You'll notice that soccer magnet that held on for this entire series finally falls off around 8:30. At 13:39 the truck is just as pissed off as I am at the bag that stuck in the can and sounds badass when it takes off. Enjoy.

2 x Cardboard 3m @ Fusion Cruises
This was one of the larger jobs we visited on that Thursday night, taken from a small marina housing a number of cruise ships. There are three to service here, but only two 3m containers were full that night. I was told they throw a mix of materials inside these cardboard bins, including bottles like you'll hear and plastic like you'll see. I hope you enjoy the action... it's cool to see a small truck handling big bins.





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





Summer Break 2011: J&J Refuse GMC Moving Van
Today I was going to film the J&J mini packer at my grandma's house again, only to find out it was broke down. They don't have a back up truck and evidentally the city contract will not let them service this one-lane private road with a full size truck, they decied to rent a moving van to collect with. Enjoy this unusual footage!

Warringah Clean-Up Pt 1 (Truck #123 / Dirty Residents)
I took these videos one Tuesday after school while all the trucks were out trying to get the rest of my area finished. In this video we have truck 123 taking care of a large set-out by some dirty residents - all this rusted, heavy and loose material was scattered all over this nature strip. Then there is another shorter video of this truck servicing a few other piles, a single clip of 046 feeding on some sofas and a metal cabinet, then finally we have a full truck 122 struggling to get one last pile squashed in. Hope you enjoy the four videos, please rate and comment.

Summer Break 2011: Republic Services 2017 ft. 2223
2223 broke down yet again, and these guys finished up their route early so they came over to help Bill finish up. This is truck 2017 wihich is their pup truck. I previously filmed this truck as 684 back last Winter. It sure looks nice with the new paint!! At the end of the video, I have footage of 2223 finishing up the route. Thanks for watching and please leave decent comments (more than "nice vid")





Old Blue Mountains Clean-Up Truck
Back in June 2011 I returned to the Blue Mountains early on a Monday morning to capture more footage of the trucks and to get a bit of an update on what was being used up there. There was no surprise seeing one of the massive JJ Richards recycling trucks in Glenbrook, but I also came across one of the smaller recycling trucks in Blaxland during the late morning. The first truck I videoed early in the darkness was the only new garbage truck in the council fleet at the time, another MJ / Acco with a different paint scheme. After this I was surprised to find one of the old Garpac side loaders still on litter bins, but I coincidently found out that a brand new Garwood was sitting in the works depot as a replacement for that particular Garpac. After all this I also caught up with one of the existing garbage trucks during the early afternoon. However, between all this I had a main priority which was to catch the clean-up trucks on video. The first time I was there I discovered the old Formula 5000 they used on clean-up and was told about the Scania, and at 7am on this Monday I came across this old rear loader. It turned out the old International / Heil was sitting in the workshop, so I got to video the old MacDonald Johnston (E-Z Pack) instead. Nothing really much to say, but you'll notice this truck is very old and battered... I was almost certain the council would have upgraded by then. Here you get a brief driving shot and a view of the packer handling a couple of sofas.





Bankstown Recycling (#R1)
This is one of the six Bankstown side loaders used in the previous recycle fleet, four of which were MkIVs and the other two were MkVs. This is truck R1, which was one of the 2007 models part of the council works fleet. I found this truck first thing on a Monday morning in a different part of Chester Hill to which I videoed GC4. I got a few clips during sunrise just before he went off to tip the first load and the rest was taken after returning for his second load when the sun was up. You’ll see this truck has a pretty quick arm on it, particularly a good whip on the way down, so never is a lid left closed after emptying. This truck also has a bit of a higher pitched sound to it, more of a scream than growl, but you still get some nice deeper tones out of it during certain parts of the video. I also keep forgetting if this truck or R2 has become the spare recycle machine, but for whichever one isn’t the spare, the GenV body of that truck is now sitting on a former Sutherland ACCO, which is now a URM truck in Warringah. I have three more Bankstown recycle videos to upload, one of the other GenV and also a couple of the MkIVs.





Autocar/Labrie Automizer 37yd Split Body Dumping Single Stream Recycle
Finally got some sort of dumping footage of this truck. Our yard guy was dumping the truck and he's pretty much not a truck driver so he hardly knows how to use the vehicles. He wasn't revving and took forever to find out what controls did what.





KMC Clean-Up
I was told by a driver that the clean-up guys probably wouldn't be out because that Monday was a public holiday. However, after sighting the paper truck again, I noticed this truck driving towards me. The guys were cool with the filming, so I followed them around for a while until they stopped beside two decent piles I'd seen earlier. I also recognised this truck after hearing it rev and see its body size, so I went to the front of the truck and saw #328; one of the old Warringah vegetation trucks. Please rate, comment and hope you enjoy!
