The days of being awoken by noisy rubbish trucks may be over in the City of Casey, who announced today that an electric rubbish truck is currently operating to recycle hard waste from residents’ homes.

The ambitious project allows transport trucks to run electric drivetrains without long stoppages, saving money, diesel, and improving air quality. Could charging road trains on-the-go be Australia’s future?
