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.

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!





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.





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.





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")





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





Labrie Automizer Collecting Single Stream Recycle - Hopper View Pt. 2
Part two of this Labor Day week Tuesday recycle collection. Thumbs up if you can spot the brake rotor!





Veolia Trade Waste Collection
Once again I'm due for a rear loader upload and have noticed it's been a while since I last shared something of a Compaction Systems unit. So I went through what I have available and chose this video! This is another upload based on commercial and industrial collections, or "trade waste" as it is also known, but for a change we have a Veolia truck featured for the first time, at least since that video from ages ago of one of their new Isuzus. Back when I did night shift, sometimes I motivated myself to go out after work into the daytime and video some garbage trucks... instead of sleeping and lazying around at home. On three different Monday mornings I pushed through into daylight hours and detoured to the Manly area, where I joined a mate doing his rear loader run with truck #20359, which may well have worked in the previous City of Sydney contract. Basically all this footage was taken on the beach side of Manly in the loading zone of Henrietta Lane, which was once a popular spot for me videoing the Manly Council trucks. You will see Veolia has some good four-wheeled bin work in this little spot, which includes shops, pubs and hotels... plenty of garbage comes out of here! A fun fact; you can't really service Manly in the middle of the night due to lots of daytime restrictions - quite an inconvenience. I achieved a bit of tripod action around the beginning for some neat recording, but most was handheld videoing. I also edited off most of the slow parts without trying to take away the full experience of the job, but I understand some sections may still get boring... personally I enjoy the last 4mins or so the most. Also a unique sound to this truck compared to what I've heard in the past, not that it doesn't sound good! Cheers to the operator and hope you enjoy!





Palerang Recycling
Palerang Council is found in the Queanbeyan region, right beside the ACT and NSW state border. Palerang is one of those really large areas containing a small population amongst a lot of countryside and a few small urban areas. In this video we see the collection vehicle I found moving between houses in Bungendore, one of the three main towns in the council. I expected this would be the truck I might see after previously coming across it on Google, though I don't know if it's still in operation a couple of years later. After an early high speed drive down the Kings Highway on a Monday morning, I arrived in Bungendore a little after 7am, which was the start time for collections. Thankfully I found the truck very quickly, just as he was finishing off the main road and went into the quiet backstreets. I enjoyed following this little single axle MacDonald Johnston Hino combination through the town as it collected the recycling. It seemed really suitable having a quiet truck servicing such a tranquil area; barely any disturbance apart from some clattering glass! I also found a much newer version of this truck parked outside the local council office as I was on my way out; perhaps collecting recycling in the northern parts of the town? There is quite a large service area the council covers for collections, more so now since they introduced green-waste and extended the collection zones... the trucks travel a lot. Also note in Palerang the different bins can be collected on different days, which is why there are no garbage bins presented for a Thursday pick-up. I hope you enjoy the simple straight-street collections and the mountain backgrounds here and there =] Cheers to the operator too!





Warringah Units -- The New JP5 (Papers)
Here is some footage of truck #166, the new JP5 operating in my council, collecting the paper in the Wednesday units just after getting back from the transfer station. This was shot way back on my 2009 July holidays when the truck was still clean and shiny just after the contract had started... a bit of a different story now. The new truck seems to pack a decent load, is much quieter than other JP5 / Accos and is awesome to work with! The only real let down about this truck is the slow operation speed as you will see with the lifter and packer. Since I shot this footage the truck has become a little faster, but the packer is still quite slow. When the revs aren't on, the lifter seriously looks like it isn't even moving after a certain point on the way down! haha Hope you enjoy, please rate and comment. Also be sure to take a look at the video of the massive JP5 doing garbage and the old Heil doing the bottles recycling...

Marrickville Garbage Pt 2
Emptying 37 garbage bins from a single apartment...





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.





City of Ryde - Bundled Green-Waste
Back with the same funny guys on the clean-up, except this time it is all about picking up the green-waste. This is what I found them doing first up that Thursday morning; moving through a few streets and collecting the bundles of tree trimmings. There is plenty of packing involved in this video, including a clip which shows the Heil struggling on some timber. Hope you enjoy the action, all ratings and comments are highly appreciated.





Old Pittwater Truck - Bottles Recycling
Now here is an original Pittwater truck & driver. Ever since I first went there, this was the first truck I ever saw and the first driver I met in Pittwater. I took this footage back in January 2008 on a Wednesday following the new year celebrations, so there were some bottle bins filled with a decent amount of glass. Once again sorry about the sound quality, just lower the volume to improve it.

Recycling the Go Green packer
Created on June 14, 2011 using FlipShare.I told the driver that Green frog was in the hopper.lol and he got recycled.





Campbelltown Bulk Waste
When I was in Campbelltown one Thursday I couldn't mistake a number of clean-up piles sitting on the kerbside. I knew the council ran an on-call service, I just wasn't sure if the collections occured on the actual area's collection day or anytime during the week. Well lucky for me, while wandering around Ingleburn to find the garbage truck, this massive rear loader swung out of a side street and had me chasing it seconds later. In the first action clip you'll see that the truck is starting to fill up with the way the blade doesn't fully close and starts to open while nearing the end of each pack cycle. During this video we follow the last four piles these guys managed to get into this MacDonald Johnston. I felt pretty sorry for them too, because they only had one more house to stop at, which unfortunately had a set-out too large to jam into the remaining space of the tailgate. An enormous thanks goes to these two cool garbos, hope you all enjoy the clean-up footage, then of course please rate and comment.
