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!
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.
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
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
Waste Management Trucks - Inspired by 3amrepmike3
After watching 3amrepmike3's Burrtec video, it inspired me to create a
similar video. I know that most of you like videos that have a lot of
different trucks in each video. I decided that you all might like this. I
will continue to make videos like this but only of clips that you haven't
seen so everything will be new to you. Some of these clips are ones that
you have seen and some you have not seen yet. I hope you enjoy this video I
put together. If you have any questions, feel free to ask them in the
comments down below!

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.
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.
Labrie Automizer VS Power Wheels
I was in a trailer park on my route and typically I'm not supposed to take
bulk considering the fact my truck is a 60/40 split body. Loaded up the
powerwheels and let the truck go to work!!
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!

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
