Job Description for Garbage Truck Driver

Garbage truck drivers are responsible for picking up trash from residential and commercial locations, often with mechanical arms of trucks which scoop up garbage and unload it into the truck. These mechanical arms are operated by the driver, so prior experience with similar machinery is highly beneficial. Some jobs are more physically demanding than others, such as when garbage must be loaded manually rather than with machinery.
