How impressive, how hope providing ... over here in my neighbourhood, usually they come during the night, between two and three, making a hell of a noise ...

Please have a wonderful Tuesday.

Looks very efficient! We don't have very many automatic garbage trucks as people usually throw things away in plastic trash bags.

These look like ours. Today was trash day for us too. Nice photos!

These are very efficient. Our home collection is still made by hand, but most businesses have bigger bins like these that can be loaded automatically.

Our bin collection days are Tuesday and Friday.

He has huge orange arms. LOL
Looks like our garbage truck and also manned by one person.
Tomorrow is my garbage day.
Garbage only once a week and recycle every other week. Works out well. MB

It's new for me, very modern!
I think here they only use the traditional old work with garbage,with the driver of the truck and more two or three helpers.

We use a similar system. Except for the noise, an efficient way to go.

I have seen these working in Viterbo, they are clever aren't they.

Livorno is actually very modern and efficient. I've been living here for three years and although things look old, it's a great place!

Believe it or not I have never noticed how they do it with these containers here...
