Are there any garbage trucks that are hybrids?

    Yes! I have to say im surprised and thrilled. New York City’s sanitation dept. challenged the hybrid industry with making a hybrid garbage truck two years ago, according to the New York Times.

    These trucks carry 11,000 tons a day, using a lot of gas along the way. Now, the hybrid offers an alternative to dramatically reduce emissions. Though a conventional truck costs $250,000 and a hybrid cost $500,000, if the truck goes into mass production, the price will drastically lower.
