Over my spring break I decided to head over to Gardena to see how Waste Resources was holding up. It seems as if two new trucks equipped with N3 prototype arms are the regular trucks now. The pendpac sums up to be the third regular truck. That leaves the Volvo as a spare, as well as the ex LA Peterbilt. The 310 STS is long gone, as well as the Condor STS that was scrapped recently. Not sure why there was another guy riding shot gun in 311. It seems as if pendpac 306, and amreps 311, and 312 are the regular trucks. The N3 was very fun to follow, the operator maintained a speedy pace by revving the truck. Big thanks to the drivers for letting me film! Here we have pendpac 306 and amrep 311! 312 was else where.. Enjoy and watch in HQ! Filmed on 4/6/16
On my way home from the GF's house I spotted this truck in the neighborhood, quite to my surprise. First off, I didn't know that WR had ASL's, secondly, I didn't know that they did residential routes. Apparently they have only had residential routes for about a year, and I haven't really been to Gardena for truck hunting for over a year, so that makes sense. Plus the driver told me that this isn't the only STS ASL they have, which of course makes me motivated to look harder. I also stumbled upon their yard on accident, and saw a Condor/STS ASL of the newer variety, an Autocar Pendpac, and a handful of Amrep ASL's, Amrep ASL's shocking I know, but they were there. Anyway, I'll add this yard to my hit list for the future. However in the meantime, enjoy my bounty for the moment.
I finally got around to getting down to Gardena to see Waste Resources. A couple new trucks have arrived, which leads me to believe both STSs have been replaced unfortunately. They still have their older Amreps and I would assume their Pendpac too. Anyways, this was my first time following an N3 on route and my faith has been restored in them. It's always wonderful to see new trucks handle 8-second cycles easily, and this particular truck flipped a solid amount of lids too. Filmed December 18th, 2015.
Here is a truck that is scary slow even when he gets it way up in revs. But still leaves the hopper fast enough to flip lids! Well enjoy. I would have gotten more if I was able to. After a short bit, he turned the corner and was never to be found again. oh well. And before you ask.....no we didnt find the STS asl. Or even Pendpac that i hear rumors of them owning.

The Plastic Disclosure Project (www.plasticdisclosure.org) was launched at the Clinton Global Initiative by Ocean Recovery Alliance as a way to bring about large scale prevention of plastic waste. This is an investor and multi-stakeholder driven program to encourage companies and other institutions to measure their plastic footprint and develop plastic management strategies to create a world where plastic adds value to businesses without negatively impacting the environment. This can be done on a global basis, without needing to change legislation, create bans, or impose taxes. It can be rapidly successful if we all look at ourselves, and our operations, "in the mirror," and measure what we use, and how we reuse it. Once measurement starts, then better management practices and solution...
This is an 15 minute presentation on the challenges faced by our region in terms of managing our waste in the future. The video includes detailed descriptions of the Reduce, Reuse and Recycle policy undertaken by our region. It also describes our plans to recover energy from residual waste using a combination of Mechanical Biological Treatment (MBT) such as Anaerobic Digestion or In-Vessel Composting and Advanced Energy Recovery techniques such as Gasification and Pyrolysis.
Economic growth across developing Asian countries has led to a sharp increase in consumption. With higher levels of waste now generated, local governments struggle to cope with solid waste management. Governments are confronted with increasing costs for disposal, while public health and the environment suffer from the damaging effects of untreated solid waste. Solid waste management systems in Asia are strained, and landfill space is fast becoming a rare commodity. The United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific, Waste Concern and local partners embarked on a regional project, Pro-Poor and Sustainable Solid Waste Management in Secondary Cities and Small Towns, to find appropriate approaches to waste management that would transform waste products into valuable r...
Here we have a small mix of different garbage trucks operated by Waste Resources, a small local hauler in Gardena. Mike (amrepmike) had plans to visit this place to film their STS side loader and invited me along. We made our way here after filming a few of MCSD's trucks earlier that morning. While waiting for the STS side loader to finish dumping his load of trash, we went around to look for other trucks to film in the meantime. The first truck you'll see is an Ex-City of Los Angeles Amrep Octo on a Peterbilt collecting yard waste. Mike's hand gesture in the second clip is basically "Oh well..." since the driver had a very "nice" way of saying no to us filming.. The second is a Pendpac Alley-Gator on an Autocar WX also collecting yard waste. The last truck is an STS front loader on a Ster...
This week I show you how we carelessly waste our precious Earth's resources in one way. I hope you see in the video how much packaging it took to put together 2 small electric toothbrush attachments and how we carelessly waste resources doing so. Well, be sure to check out my other videos. And subscribe and like for more videos every week!!! Bye for now!!! :-)
Here is the first truck we came across on our adventure on this day, A BEAUTIFUL Autocar, Pendpac asl. This truck is driven by one of the coolest drivers out there. Big thanks to him for being so cool with us filming, and actually having fun at the same time! And yes many of you are probably wondering, does it flip lids all the time? Yes, finally a pendpac that flips lids everywhere it goes! Another thing that made for a nice day, we never saw one amrep asl! I love amreps, but when PendPacs and STS asls are in the big picture. Ill film them instead :D
