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.

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.

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

Pittwater Vegetation (The Old Truck) Pt 2

The Cozens Front-Lift Pt 1
If I remember correctly, this truck joined the Cozens Paper Recycling team in 2007, currently used daily to empty the company's yellow and black containers located around Sydney. This is one of the very few MacDonald Johnston front-lifts you will find in Sydney - also only 1 of 2 garbage trucks with a bright yellow smiley face =] It's been just over 5 years since I posted a decent video of this machine! Ages ago on a Monday morning I was circling the Brookvale industrial area on the bike while looking for trucks, happy to find this front loader show up and head towards the yard. I'd previously gotten the company's old Volvo RL unloading here, so it only made sense to get the FL unloading too. All was good; I followed along, he reversed in, opened the tailgate and pushed a load of cardboard out. Apart from being the Cozens yard, this place also takes in paper and cardboard from local collections, where the material is baled up, with semis coming in to collect and transfer to Amcor at Matraville. Parts 2 and 3 show this truck emptying bins and I have some much older videos found in my earlier uploads (if you're keen to see more). This is the last I have of this front loader, so I'll have to catch up with the driver again for some fresh action, plus footage of the Cozens rear loader on the job.

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! Link to 3amrepmike3's Burrtec video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nIoDmBaJroE

Here's part 2 from the other day, battery died right at the end of the video but that's ok since it was the final stop I did.

The Hills Green-Waste
In June last year I was off work for a couple of weeks and decided to spend a lot of my time doing videos, which included visiting some places again for the first time in a while. One area I really wanted to stop by was The Hills Shire Council, formerly known as Baulkham Hills Shire, which I originally went to 5 years ago! I thought the contract was up for renewal soon, so I wanted to get the existing trucks on video quickly, but I found out more than 3 years still remain. This is good news as I have lots of time to video the other trucks, but even better still, I can potentially get behind the wheel of these one armers in the future =] After following a rear loader around the north shore during the early hours of a Friday, I drove to The Hills region in north western Sydney. The suburb of Glenhaven was my target for the morning, right on the edge of the council’s urban area. I wasn’t expecting to video a particular truck or anything, rather just waited for the first side loader to show up somewhere. I was in the garbage and green-waste zone, with nearby access to recycle trucks, but I hung around and circled the same area looking for one of the big blue Cleanaway machines. It turns out I arrived at the worst time when the trucks were off tipping their first loads, because I saw none until mid morning came along. I’d just started exploring a few different streets when one of the greenies finally turned up for the second load. After approaching the driver, I found out he was the same bloke driving the same truck that I came across the first time I was there. He remembered me and told me he watched the video, so hopefully this fresh and longer production entertains him too! Anyway here you’ve got #43 picking up the winter greens in the quiet residential streets of a garden proud area. This is only one of the many Superior Pak side loaders out there in The Hills - I’ve got garbage uploaded, but I’m yet to video anything of a recycle truck.

JJ Richards & Sons #8867
Here’s one of the big JJ Richards front-lifts handling a 4.5m in the Cromer industrial area during daylight hours a few years ago. This is one of those jobs where you have to reverse outside so you don’t write off the ceiling when you throw the bin. You get the best sounds when this truck is undercover or indoors, because the engine is more audible and the short release of brake air is sharper. I reckon it looks better seeing these massive trucks emptying big bins like this 4.5m; watching them lift tiny little 660Ls looks ridiculous =] You also get to see the two-in-one cab cover and top door quickly flipping over.

Benalla Garbage
This week brings you a second video from my short trip across the border into VIC a couple of years back, featuring another Cleanaway side loader, but different to the Wodonga truck I shared a while ago. I caught this Superior Pak working through the early morning pick-ups in Benalla, which is one of the two little single axle side loaders used on the garbage collections in the council. I located truck #670 first thing on a Thursday morning, servicing the residents in the north-west corner of the rural city. The trucks were only a couple of years into the contract when I was there - you can note a couple of small telltales of the newer Raptor body. So the trucks are pretty late model units, got the dark blue body colour and I noticed they have the same signage as the City of Kingston. I wasn't too sure about what I was going to find on the roads when I got there, but figured the trucks would belong to Cleanaway. Also reckon it's pretty neat to see a couple of little 4x2s being used for the garbage collections... quite different from the bigger 6-wheelers you usually see for new contracts. Thanks to the professional and quality operator for letting me shoot some videos; hopefully he enjoys the footage if he comes across it one day. Once again I was happy to get a little bit of daylight and semi-darkness action in the video; always looks nice with the lights going =] I see they have 80L, 140L and 240L bin options in Benalla; that's the way to do it! Anyway hope you viewers enjoy this steady and smooth action. I'm particularly happy with the exit shot at the end, thought it came out nice driving down the long and quiet road.
