Cynthia Hood - A Day as a Garbo - Pt. 3
Cynthia continues her story about her day out with the garbage collectors in 1984. These were the days when dustbins had lids and were made of metal not plastic. Additionally a couple of guys were needed to empty the bins into the truck (as shown below).
Today this is done by the driver seated in his air conditioned cab using a hydraulic liting arm.
