I caught this truck on a Friday morning in the units collecting the bottle bins. There were three of these trucks in my council when Veolia ran the show. Big thanks to the driver, funny how he let that one 240L fly! =]

07 Oct 11 Leichhardt Bottles Recycling

Now here’s the recycling collection in Leichhardt, done by a small MJ rear loader during bottles week – specifically chosen for the crashing =] There were some real nice sharp crashes, with some of these bins full of glass being summer; I bet it affects the hearing after a while! Also you got more manual lifting here, some real heavy bins that make this the ultimate workout. I reckon if companies want to stop the guys lifting the bins manually, because of occupational safety, they need to make the lifter work faster… otherwise this becomes the most efficient and fastest means of collection. I’d like to give a big cheers to this team, a very friendly couple of blokes. Definitely some hard workers who should be able to put their feet up, sit in front of a digital widescreen TV and have a beer in hand at the end of the day :) Hope you enjoy the footage, please rate and comment, then take a look at the garbage collection.

01 Oct 11 Mosman Bottles Recycling

Here we’ve got the bottles recycling later on during that Friday morning. By this stage the rain had started to come down… pissed me off when a couple of drops hit the lense on the last clip! lol Wasn’t as much crashing involved as I hoped, but there was still a bit. The driver was also keen for me to get a shot of him handling all the bins that were clumped together in the 3rd clip; he did that pick-up very well! The last clip gives you an idea of how tight the access is to some of the streets these drivers need to get into. Hope you guys enjoy the footage, all ratings and comments would be awesome. Big thanks to the driver for making this footage possible and hope he enjoys the footage too! Also if you haven’t already, take a look at the video of the garbage collection with this truck and the video of the little 4×2 side loader picking up the garbage too.
