Gilton Solid Waste uses a "one-pass" truck system, meaning the same truck picks up the garbage can and the yard waste can. The truck is divided internally to keep the materials separate, note the two doors on the backview below. Bertolotti Disposal Service uses one truck for the black garbage can and one for the green yard waste can.
