29 Oct 11 MJ GenV Unloading

Here is a shot I got of one of the Blue Mountains GenVs unloading 6.68t of garbage at the council’s Blaxland landfill facility. I reckon it’s cool how the public unload where the trucks unload, no extremely strict safety bullshit that you find at many government facilties. I’ve gotta say, they should get a green-waste service here after seeing this load. However, when I contacted the council asking about why there isn’t one, the councillor who replied gave me a handful of reasons as to why they don’t have a green-waste service up there – cost, transport, contracts, product demands, etc. Hope you enjoy the footage, please rate and comment. If you haven’t already, check out the video of the Blue Mountains clean-up truck unloading on this exact same ground.

06 Oct 11 Randwick Recycling (MJ GenV Recycler)

This is one of the GenV Recyclers that I got to see in Randwick collecting the recycling. You may notice that the recycling bins are still divided from the old Veolia contract, which have now been replaced with brand new bins. I wish I got videos of the old divided recycling trucks, would’ve been cool to see! I would also like to thank the driver for doing some extra streets for me as he was finished for the day. Would’ve worked out better if the first driver was more helpful. In addition, a big thanks goes to the council officer who helped me with the collection areas 😀 Check out the video responses for a video of the new features on the GenV and for the two videos I have of the garbage collection. I also had to use two cameras because one ran out of space, so that’s why the quality changes about halfway through – sorry about that. Hope you enjoy the footage, please rate and comment.

14 May 11 Randwick Garbage (MJ GenV Refuse)

Randwick was the second council I visited for videos of garbage trucks. What got me travelling many the kilometres from home, by myself, into an unknown area, when I was only 14 was MacDonald Johnston’s previously never before seen new GenV side loader series, and of course the new Iveco Acco cab… The GenV (or MkV) is the fifth generation in MacDonald Johnston’s side loader range. There are some good improvements that have been made to their SL range, such as the better RotaGrab arm. As for Iveco, an example is the new Cummins ISC05 engine that they’ve thrown into their Accos. If you put a Genv and an Acco together, you get one good truck… Check out the video responses for a video of the new features on the GenV, further footage of the garbage collection and a video of the GenV Recycler collecting the recycling. I really like the sound of the new engine! =] I hope you enjoy the footage of this two week old truck, ratings and comments are greatly appreciated.
