http://www.gizmag.com/electric-garbage-truck-is-powered-by-garbage/10915/ Here's a good one..A UK based Garbage truck has been converted to Electric Drive..and it's charged up by the electricity generated from the incineration of the waste collected..and there's even a surplus that goes into the grid! What do you think? I like this!

That would be totally awesome LOL. I would love to see a garbage truck that could use the garbage it picks up to run instead of gas. How bout other cars that can run on grabage.

So long as the Incinerator is producing enough juice for the truck and a surplus to put into the Grid,any EV could be doing just that!

That's a really good idea. It's amazing that something that was 'invented' on a film in the 80s has finally been made real.

I still think given the choice I'd prefer the DeLorean over a Transit,though!

That's pretty cool! A garbage truck that runs on garbage! What will they think of next?
