This book describes the job of a garbage truck. Showing a range of trucks like the rear loader, side arm loader, and front arm loader, the differences between them are clearly explained, and children will love identifying these trucks in their own neighborhoods. Vibrant photos show a range of jobs, including the garbage collector riding on the back of his garbage truck and helping load the garbage bins. Labels on other photographs show the parts of a garbage truck. Lastly, an explanation of recycling trucks and how recycling is different from trash is given.
