For me personally I like how repetitive the job is. Some days I pick over 1000 containers. I liken it to a city wide video game where I try to shave off minutes from the different routes I do week after week. There’s hundreds of different ways to do a route and it’s fun to try and figure out the most efficient way.

I wanted to be a garbage man since I watched the movie La Bamba where Richie Valens and his brother find a guitar and woody woodpeckers drawings in the trash! I always thought that was so cool as a kid (not OP but I drive a garbage truck as well)

If it’s unpressurized it could be dropped off at metal recycling depot. No need to put it in the general trash. (Not OP but am a trash man)

I do drive a side loader for garbage collections.. the arm and pinchers are really easy to manipulate after some practice. I drive a right hand drive truck so it’s very easy to see out the side window for any cars or other cans that need to be worked around.

Do you collect at night or evenings? How does that work?
