In NYC they sometimes refer to garbage hauling as carting. I’m not sure why. The further you go from the metro area the fewer the companies that advertise as carting specialists. By the time you reach upstate the preferred phrase is rubbish or simply garbage. You could probably right an entire paper on this subject but let’s look at photos instead.
When not looking at mixer truck from his most recent NYC trip Ryan grabbed a few shots of garbage trucks across the city. Here is Castle Carting.
And Five Star Carting.
The owners of Mr. Rubbish have bucked the name trend with their busted old Western Star. Still cool.
Dirty and well used. A garbage truck really can’t look any other way.
