Observation: Garbage truck-the urban scavenger

 I get scared by the immense size and grunting noise of this  monster of a vehicle, the green garbage truck. I see this giant truck pulling up to the garbage bin, lift them, dump the enormous piles of waste and haul them to the solid waste treatment facility. I learned that this dumpster is a front loader vehicle, fitted with a pair of crab-like forks which aligns with the sides of trash container. The garbage is dumped into the truck and pressed by hydraulic system. When the garbage picking is complete, or dumpster is filled with compact waste, they are ejected via the tailgate. Demonic they may look in front of the sleek cars, but these janitor vehicles deserve appreciation for keeping the residential and urban areas filth-free.
