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.

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!
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!
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
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.

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 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.
San Jose's Unique Method of Green Waste Collection- 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.
City of Ryde - Garbage & Greens
Here is the last Ryde video for this series which shows two of the ten MJ
Recycle side loaders in action. One of the trucks is collecting the
residential garbage, operated by the skilled and speedy driver from my
first Ryde Garbage video, and the second truck is servicing a handful of
green-waste bins just before finishing up for the day, also operated by a
very fast and skilled driver - notice the large heavy-duty grabber on this
Also a little something of interest: when the contract started in 2005,
Ryde and WSN decided to incorporate a special ManageMate computer system
into the trucks. This allows WSN to monitor their truck positions and
operations from their head office. Also special 'tags' were attached to the
new garbage bins delivered for the new contract, which all had their own
identification and were registered at specific addresses. These tags allow
the trucks to record the net weight of the bin which would be charged to
the specific house, and also lets the driver make quick and easy
adjustments notes such as bin obstructed, not out, contaminated, etc. The
tag reader is situated between the grabber and main arm connection which
explains the fatter appearance.
Hope you enjoy the footage in this video, please rate and comment. Also a
giant thanks to these drivers, I hope they enjoy the footage along with you
guys. Make sure you visit my other Ryde videos to see more truly awesome
