Another disadvantage is that the height of the space required by the hanging bucket elevator to lift and dump the trash can is high, which has certain limitations for indoor operations, especially when transferring garbage in the basement.

The side-loader compactor garbage truck is improved on the basis of the hanging bucket garbage truck (self-loader and unloading garbage truck).

In this way, a built-in compression dozer is added, and a sewage tank is installed.
