North American debut of Rotating Garbage Trucks in Houston

Recommended Posts

From Swamplot:

The natural-gas powered tumblers hold 40 percent more waste than conventional collection trucks, are quieter, have fewer moving parts, and separate from their truck cabs, which the company can switch out and upgrade independently. The rotating drum helps distribute the load more evenly on the trailer, and mixes wet and dry materials, which the company tactfully says “reduces the amount of free liquid in the system.”

That's cool. I'm not surprised, though. We most often think of Houston's industries as energy and medical, but we often forget that the largest waste management company in the country is based right here (as is the world's largest broadline food distributor). It's not shocking that WM would debut their state-of-the-art vehicles in their hometown.

Good post, fatesdisastr.
