The new automated garbage truck is fully equip with cameras, a garbage compactor, and a pair of retractable extending arms to allow for more efficient collection of waste.

The District of Houston is asking the community to help make collection easier by ensuring these few safety measures. Please make sure garbage cans are not placed up against poles or fences or next to vehicles so that the arms of the garbage truck don’t scratch them. If you own two garbage cans, do not place them together. Please ensure that there is enough space for the arms to get in and attach themselves to each individual garbage bin. Lastly, please arrange the arrows of your garbage bin to face out towards the street.

The cost of this new garbage unit was just over $240,000.This new unit will speed up garbage delivery, and reduce trips because of the efficiency of its compactor. Thereby helping save on fuel, wear and tear, and emissions.
