How does my trash collection work?

Just roll your cart to the curb by 7 a.m. on your collection day. The cart is emptied mechanically from inside Republic Services’ vehicle cab. The driver uses a joy-stick, much like those used in video games, to operate the automated arm that picks up the cart and empties the trash into the truck. The cart is set back on the on the curb and the Republic Services truck moves on to the next stop.
