Garbage Truck - Household Garbage Dump Truck The household garbage dump truck or garbage truck is a roadway machine intended for the collection and transport of household waste to its place of treatment (recycling center or incinerator). Garbage trucks are fitted at the rear with a rotor that allows them to compress the garbage.
In the past, household waste was collected manually and transported in "dumpers", a kind of horse-drawn carts whose tilting would allow the waste to be dumped. The first garbage truck was marketed in the United States in 1938.
Nowadays garbage trucks have a waste collection system that automatically adapts to the size of the container. Some garbage trucks are equipped with an on-board weighing system that measures the mass of waste transported.
The main manufacturers of household refuse collection vehicles are Semat, Faun, Dennis and Eurovoirie. The skips are sometimes mounted on Renault, Mercedes, Iveco or Volvo chassis. In recent years, manufacturers have developed less polluting household refuse dump trucks, in electric or CNG versions.
