Here is a truck that is scary slow even when he gets it way up in revs. But still leaves the hopper fast enough to flip lids! Well enjoy. I would have gotten more if I was able to. After a short bit, he turned the corner and was never to be found again. oh well. And before you ask.....no we didnt find the STS asl. Or even Pendpac that i hear rumors of them owning.
Dempster Recycle One on Commercial Recycling
First off, we have a Dempster Recycle One on a Volvo WXLL chassis emptying
commercial recycling bins at Park Middle School and Kennewick High School.
Then there's a Dempster Recycle One on a WhiteGMC WXLL chassis dumping
curbside recyclables at the recycle center, and the Volvo WXLL Dempster
Recycle One dumps off the commercial recycling at the recycle center!
First Gear Trucks (READ DESCRIPTION!)
Here are my first gear trucks! Hope you like the video. Most of these
trucks have been made by me. Like the Curbtender and Scorpion. I did modify
that Ray Bros. hopper to made it shorter. I will eventually have an Amrep
octo in my fleet. This is probably going to be my only FG video. Tell me
which was you favorite truck!
NOTE: I am stopping voting since I feel like it is wrecking the surprise of
what will come next.
Hope you enjoyed the video!
And Jaccob, if you see this, I hope you like the Curbtender and scorpion!

My Brand New Amrep Hardox ASL
Today I had a day off from work, and got to watch the one week anniversary
of this new Autocar ACX / Amrep Hardox ASL. I talked to the driver for a
little bit and he told me that he just got the truck, and was breaking it
Waste Resources STS ASL with a Peterbilt 310!
On my way home from the GF's house I spotted this truck in the
neighborhood, quite to my surprise. First off, I didn't know that WR had
ASL's, secondly, I didn't know that they did residential routes. Apparently
they have only had residential routes for about a year, and I haven't
really been to Gardena for truck hunting for over a year, so that makes
sense. Plus the driver told me that this isn't the only STS ASL they have,
which of course makes me motivated to look harder. I also stumbled upon
their yard on accident, and saw a Condor/STS ASL of the newer variety, an
Autocar Pendpac, and a handful of Amrep ASL's, Amrep ASL's shocking I know,
but they were there.
Anyway, I'll add this yard to my hit list for the future. However in the
meantime, enjoy my bounty for the moment.

Garbage Trucks Unloading - Part 3
Here is the third part to the series. I tried to mix it up so that there
was a decent mix of truck types in the video, so hopefully all of you will
enjoy it. As it stands, it looks like there will be 1 more part to this
series after this. It will include a couple trucks unloading at other
locations as well.
Titusville Solid Waste (in action) Lodal ASL 8402 7-10-09
For pictures of this truck please click the following link to Flickr:
This is a City of Titusville, Florida, Department of Public Works, Solid
Waste, Lodal automated side loader number 8402 . I must say, this driver
was one of the friendliest I've ever met! He said that he really likes
driving automated and let me film his truck collecting a few stops. He
even let me film a shot of the hopper.
During the hopper shot, he was trying to explain to me that the packer will
not move unless the arm is in motion. I guess this is a safety feature on
this truck to prevent a driver from getting injured if they need to pull a
cart or other object from the hopper.
I found the driver again today (7-31-09), and asked him about the panel at
3:39, I think he called it a "sweeper panel." On the Lodal, this panel is
there to keep material in the body when the packer is all the way to the
rear of the truck, so that nothing falls behind the blade (not sure if you
know, but the Lodal packer is like a large brick). This panel swings back
and forth swinging up when the packer hits it and the panel rides along the
top of the packer as a shield to aid during dumping or extra packing.
This is the first Lodal ASL I've ever seen in person. I took a few
pictures of the driver so that he could get them from Flickr at his
Big THANK YOU to the driver on this one! I hope you can find the video and

San Jose's Unique Method of Green Waste Collection - Summer 2011 - Part 1
So I believe San Jose has been doing this ever since the WM contact ended
and they went with NorCal in 2001. Then in 2007 they switched to Green
Waste, but thankfully kept this system.
So in San Jose residents have the option between making a pile, (I made the
one at 8:30) or paying extra for a cart, which then is sometimes collected
by an ASL, or the RL like in the video.
Johnston Sweepers VT650 Truck Mounted Street Sweeper
A high performance road cleansing sweeper with channel brush, suction
nozzle and wide-sweep brush. A dual sweep option is available and a swept

Great environmental features - a water recirculation option, independently
operated from the cab. This systems conserves water and reduces dust
emissions with longer on station time.
Noise sources are soundproofed and the Johnston VT650 has achieved full
PM10 test compliance for vehicle emissions.
Garbage Day (2011) Part 1
Heres a compilation of just some of the footage from Jareds house over the
summer! There could be 3 parts, all I know is about 3 weeks worth got
deleted somehow seeing as I only missed 2 weeks, but dont have 5 weeks
worth of footage! dang! Oh well. Still likely to be a 3 part series dues to
the fact I'm only on part 1 and have a lot to go. Yes, we lost a few
'soldiers' this summer, one of which was a 1982 Zarn, but hey, we put them
out nowing they might fall in. Not the drivers fault. Hes one of the nicest
guys around so dont attack him for not getting it out. Its againt company
policy for any driver to get in the hopper for any reason. Well, enjoy! I
think this is the longest video I've uploaded so far.
