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.
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.
the start of bottle madness

along with 2 OTHER neighbors' cans. again, bottles galore!!

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!
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

Australian garbage truck in California!?! pt 1
This truck was amazing to follow! I had some spare time on a Wednesday
afternoon back in January and came across #61 doing the trash with a new
engine--without a doubt!! My driver told me some of EDI's trucks were
getting new engines, but I didn't realize that meant the ASLs! Check this
beauty out and see the difference in 61's engine sound!
I spent some time in Orange County today.
So I sat in a parking lot waiting for a Heil STARR to leave, and when he
did I followed, but unfortunately he was heading to the dump after his
lunch. Which was fine, but somehow I lost him... So I journeyed into
Fullerton and visited MG Disposal, where I discovered a Maxon Legal One
with a Pete 320 chassis, and a McNeilus Pacific Series also on a Pete 320
both collecting manually.
This video showcases the main trucks used for residential garbage and
recycling collection in Kennewick, WA. First up we have a Wittke Starlight
Front Loader on a Freightliner Condor chassis, outfitted with a Curotto Can
II. Waste Management runs two of these in Kennewick. They were purchased in
2002/2003 to experiment with automated collection. The next truck in the
video is a McNeilus M/A with the optional automated arm, mounted on a
Freightliner Condor chassis. After success with the Curotto Can's,
Kennewick went fully automated in 2005. Waste Management now runs 5
McNeilus M/A's on Freightliner Condors in Kennewick. The last truck in this
video is a Dempster Recycle One mounted on a WhiteGMC Xpeditor WXLL
chassis. Kennewick has been running two of these for recycling for at least
18 years now. The one featured in this video is a spare truck, and has
hoppers on both sides of the body. The two regular Dempster Recycle One's
in Kennewick only have hoppers on the curb side. Any questions, leave them
down below in the comments. Be sure to "like"/favorite/comment and most
RARE - Ft. Myers Heil MultiPack Recycling Truck (in action) 11-23-12
At the time of this video there were only 5 known videos of the Heil
MultiPack on YouTube. This makes the 6th. I hope you all enjoy this
lengthy video showing the MultiPack in all it's glory! In the beginning of
the video you will see manual and automated loading of recycling carts and
bins. Then you will see the ASL function and at the end of the video...
well... just watch it straight through, and you'll be pleasantly surprised.
IF you absolutely must skip to the end because you are getting bored...
please don't skip past the 11:00 minute mark or you'll ruin the surprise
This truck is one of three MultiPack recycling trucks running in the City
of Ft. Myers. I took a couple hour drive to get this footage, so I really
hope everyone likes it.
NOTE: There is some driver training occurring in the video, so you may
notice some small bloopers from time to time. Every ASL driver goes
through this, no one is perfect when they are getting familiar with a new
type of truck.
Thanks for watching my videos for 4 years! It's almost fitting that I
captured such a rarely filmed truck almost exactly 4 years after shooting
my very first video. (My first video was shot on Thanksgiving day in
2008). Thank you to all my fans! Without you, this channel would not
First Gear Wittke Front-Loader Garbage Truck with Custom Accessories
Here's a video of the 1:34 scale die-cast metal Wittke Superduty front-load
garbage truck on a Mack MR chassis, made by First Gear. Shown in this video
are some custom accessories I've hand-built to go along with this superb
functional model. First up is a custom carry-can I built to ride on the
forks, enabling this truck to perform residential garbage collection
duties. After that, you'll see some of the custom scale-model dumpsters
I've built to go along with the truck. I also show the First Gear dumpster
that comes included with the truck as reference. Anyways, I hope you enjoy
this little video, I've put a lot of time and hard work into my custom
waste industry models! Any questions, feel free to ask! Thanks!
