The Mechanics of Garbage

Whether they’re working on a utility vehicle or a 55 ton Trash Monster the gentlemen who maintain our fleet keep things running smoothly for the Partnership.  Our Lead Mechanic is Calvin Williams.  He is joined by mechanics James Yates and Tony Lefavi.

The list of the equipment is amazing.  These guys are responsible for 79 vehicles and pieces of equipment.  That list includes pickup trucks, loaders, excavators and trailers…to name a few. 
Part of the maintenance, of course, includes changing oil and oil filters.  In the span of a year they change approximately 1,100 gallons of oil and 1,700 filters.  These discarded items are then recycled.
