I have been wondering why alot of collectors are using rear end loaders for collecting recyclables? I have noticed that my collector (American Disposal) does this now and it looks like Rob's collector (WM) does as well. They used to use side loading Recycling trucks with the individual buckets for paper, glass, aluminum, and plastic. I have not seen one of these trucks in the logest time. Does anyone know why collectors seem to be going this way? :?

The older segmented trucks also used more labor as every house has 2-3 separate bins to tip.  On a 800-1200 stop route this adds up.

Since I moved to a different street and district my Garbage Day is now Tuesday.
They also don't come by until late in the afternoon.
One day, of course, they'll fool the heck outta me and come by just after 07:00.
So, here is a Tuesday truck that had just stopped at Tim Hortons and was heading out on the route.

This my truck after a snowy day. It's a 2001 Mack MR, tough and rough old truck, but has a good heater and a decent stereo.

Athens Services Pete with what is probably a transfer trailer hauling from a central collection facility direct to a landfill or to a  rail load out

I caught this Carson-Douglas Disposal Pete at the International Dealer in Sparks this past weekend.



The older style cab dates the 320 as a pre 1997, while the Maxon Front Loader Body makes it mid 90s at the latest.



This operator places their rear strobe lights low, rather than above the back up camera on the upper angle of the packer body.

Seem that the local division of Waste Management have  received new trucks or at least new for the area. I took those pics this afternoon and it was the first time I have seen them.





I took this last pic yesterday along TCH. This brand new Waste Management Autocar is coming out of Labrie shop where  he have received  his garbage collection equipment. When they have to be delivered in the NothEast, trucks are usually driven to their destination. If they go further West or South they  take a ride in  a lowboy. This one is pulled by a Pete 386 from Transport SM out of St-Come in Beauce County.

Good Shots of WM in Quebec. I've never seen a Sideloader on a F550 like that.  It seems like you'd only be able to get 15-25 houses worth of trash on it before having to return to the "mothership" truck or transfer station.
