Here is a new video shot on my FZ200 at 60fps 1080p. Should be better quality than the previous ones. Too bad youtube doesn't support 60fps and down samples it to 30fps. Still it should be crisper.
I actually filmed these 2 trucks over Thanksgiving break of '14. I have always seen these trucks early in the morning and so I decided to wake up at 6:00am on a Wednesday and go out to see what I could find. This was actually my FIRST video of filming WM. Hope you guys enjoy! Filmed on Nov 26, 2014 at 6:25 am Copyright 2014 SoCalGarbageTrucks Productions
This video was filmed in the Thonotosassa area of Hillsborough County, Florida at almost 9pm at night on October 3, 2013. Beginning this week, Hillsborough County transitioned to automated collection using 96 gallon and 65 gallon carts. In this video we see two trucks from Republic Services - staying out and trying to get the garbage off the ground. Huge thank you Republic Services for going the extra mile. During this transition - the three haulers serving Hillsborough County (Republic Services, Waste Management, and Progressive Waste Solutions) have had many challenges adapting to the all new routes. For some reason, the County decided to move all the haulers into new / unfamiliar service areas within the county. They are using brand new types of equipment, that the drivers likely have limited experience with, but all three haulers appear to be rising to the challenge the best they can - especially when you consider the speed at which this new collection program was implemented. The first truck shown is a 2014 Mack LEU613 with a Heil Freedom front load collection body and a Curotto-Can being used to collect the garbage carts. The second truck is an Autocar ACX with a Heil MultiTask drop-frame side load collection body. The last truck is the 2014 Mack LEU613 with a Heil Freedom front load collection body and a Curotto-Can again. In that final clip, the driver is stowing the Curotto-Can in the hopper of the body. Thanks for watching!
