Garbage trucks are typically noisy and inefficient.

Utilizing a small, high efficiency diesel engine that runs at a constant engine speed, electricity will be generated for battery storage. This will be used for hydraulic pumps and motive force of the truck creating an efficient, low emission vehicle with minimal impact on the environment as far as noise pollution is concerned. Obviously brake regeneration would be utilized. This would be an easy, low cost solution to noisy, polluting garbage trucks.
