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! Enjoy!
Leichhardt Garbage Trucks
Here is some more residential work with rear loaders on my side of the world, this time over at Leichhardt in Sydney's inner west. The council takes care of the garbage, green-waste, clean-up and food collections and URM handles the recycling. It may also interest you to know that some areas within the council are actually serviced during the evening after 5pm!
I believe the council runs four of these medium size trucks for the collections, with a Compaction Systems and Heil shown in this video. We see these two small 4x2 rear loaders knocking off the rest of the Friday garbage run. I got there pretty much just in time that morning; there were only two streets to service... and that was just after 7:30am! I noticed the collections done by council works are completed pretty early in that area. Good examples would be Strathfield who finish around 6:30am and then Burwood who finish around 7:30am too.
Anyway cheers to the friendly teams of garbos, hope you enjoy the action, please rate and comment, then of course take a look at the recycling collection.

Parramatta City Pt 1 (Garbage Collection)
Parramatta begun their contract with Cleanaway in 2007 after snatching it up from WSN. Over there they have the 3-bin-system and a series of bulk waste pick-ups each year, which is taken care of by a fleet of mainly new trucks.
The first truck I came across when I was in Parramatta was this refurbished Sidepak, which was collecting the garbage during the late morning of that Friday. The stumpy/shorter bins you will see reflect the newer version of a 140L and the tall ones reflect the old version.
I hope you enjoy the footage, please rate and comment. Also be sure to take a look at the green-waste and recycling videos.

Strathfield Greens - An Ancient Truck
There was one stuffed up Tuesday during one of my spring holidays where I visited Strathfield. I'd already missed the garbage trucks so I was praying that I would have some luck with the green-waste collection. After finding some un-serviced streets, I had a feeling WSN would be using an old truck down here... I was right :D
A quote from the driver... "It's as old as Moses". This ancient side loader has done some big rounds, originally starting off in the City of Ryde under Veolia's operations. When Veolia lost the Ryde contract, WSN got some of the old trucks and sent them to their Parramatta operations. When Parramatta canned WSN and started with Cleanaway, WSN sent this truck down to Strathfield. Each fortnight this fast truck is down in Strathfield, collecting all the green-waste Monday to Friday.
I hope you enjoy the footage of this ancient machine working hard, all ratings and comments are greatly appreciated. I would also like to give an enormous thanks to the driver, he was a very friendly bloke - you'll see he doesn't muck around with this truck either.

Here is a video showing all of the garbage trucks I have filmed in the Tri-Cities, WA area to date. I excluded trucks I filmed in Walla Walla due to video length-issues and not being able to locate footage of certain trucks (computer took a dump a few months back, lost a lot of stuff)
This video features a mix of old, previously-uploaded footage and new, never-before seen footage, including a truck that I have yet to upload any footage of at all.
In this video you will see clips of:
- McNeilus M/A Automated Side Loader on a Freightliner Condor chassis
- Wittke Express Manual Side Loader on a Volvo WXLL chassis
- Wittke Starlight Front Loader w/ a Curotto Can II on a Freightliner Condor Chassis

NASA STS FL doin' Recycle
Here is an Adventures With Sean series. We unexpectidly found this STS right when we got off the subway in LA. Both drivers were EXTREMELY cool. Its a very well kept truck with a nice metallic siver paint scheme. Thanks a bunch to both of the operaters for being so cool with our filming. We plan to go back some time in the future. Maybe we will see a different truck but I hope its the same drivers!
