Another series of piles getting fed to this old truck, with a nice variety of objects and materials thrown in...

Kiama Recycling & Greens
In this video we see two of the MJE MkIV side loaders I came across in 2011 when I crossed through Kiama Municipal Council in search of garbage trucks. It was early on a Thursday morning where I arrived in the town of Gerringong, lined with many pairs of red, yellow and green lidded bins. The first truck I came across was a GenV collecting the garbage, seen in a video I’ve already posted, then I tracked down the recycling truck and found the green waste truck a little later on. Both of the featured side loaders have since left the council works fleet following upgrades, with newer GenVs and I believe a single Superior Pak side loader now doing the rounds in the area. I originally had separate videos of these trucks to post, but I decided to throw them into the same upload. Initially I had more of the greens one to share, but unfortunately morning sunlight created enough of an issue to make me cut out some clips. In future I would like to return to this area to video something of the later model equipment they now run - I also like their unique body colour/signage! Unfortunately, I was years too late to catch the old split bin trucks the council used to run for weekly garbage and recycling =[

Hurstville Clean-Up Pt 1
During my last visit to the council I did a quick run for a couple of kilometres from the Tuesday service area to the clean-up zone to catch this truck. I only had to run through a few streets, where I came to be standing on the main road and caught the flashing beacon of this rig in the distance. I was hoping to bump into the really old Formula 5000 that they used to have on clean-up, but a few days earlier found out it had been moved down to Canberra, which totally sucked! Instead I got to video this JP5 collecting all the un-wanted junk that had been tossed out onto the kerb. There wasn't as much material out compared to what I expected, but there were still a few nice piles put out for collection - the one in this video was a MUST to get on video... where does one household keep all this garbage?! Anyway hope you enjoy the clean-up videos I took, please rate and comment, and I would like to give a cheers to these two cool garbos. If you haven't already, check out the videos of the garbage, recycling, greens and units...

Warringah Clean-Up Pt 3
This was the 2nd Scania in the Warringah fleet, truck 038...

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.
