    The average front loader garbage truck has a loading capacity of 30-40 cubic yards of garbage. This works out to different weight amounts depending on the average type of garbage.

    Americans disposed of 254.1 million tons of garbage in 2007. That is an average of 0.696 million tons of garbage every day. However, since we don’t know the specifics of the trash statistics we cannot say exactly how many garbage trucks would be necessary to carry this many tons of garbage.
