At the Alberta school, from the late ’60’s through to the mid ’90’s, all garbage was hauled down to the garbage pits on the lower field. The crew responsible – “garbage crew” – would drive the truck down. There were adventures along the way… For a number of students this was where they learned to drive.

The truck designated as the garbage truck was a multipurpose vehicle, as the pictures above illustrate. (I couldn’t find a photo of the truck actually hauling garbage!).
