Since my last post, I've visited the 27th Ave. site for collection several times, but the highlight of last week was the opportunity for a ride-along with the trash pick up truck for a day. The city schedulers were accommodating enough to put me on the route that picked-up the recycled trash in my own neighborhood. I'll never see the houses along my neighborhood walks the same! A huge shout out to driverJeff Kovac who had to put up with me and my camera all day.
Every single time the truck picks up a can, the entire truck is jostled like being on the Indiana Jones ride at Disneyland - as the arm reaches out, brings the can to the top of the truck, bangs it against the truck to empty it, brings it back down and places it gingerly back where it was, and then the packing unit deploys to push the contents of each can into the back of the truck. By the end of the day, I could feel that rhythm of being jostled every few seconds even when I was no longer in the truck! Below are a few videos from the day.
