Garbage Trucks on Your Roads

Garbage Trucks and Your Roads

  • Road maintenance is generally the single largest budget expense for private communities that own and maintain their own roads.

  • Vehicle weight is the determining factor in wear and tear on paved roads.

  • A typical 3-axle garbage truck has an axle weight of approximately 20,000 lbs per front axle and 44,000 lbs for the rear axles (total 64,000 lbs)

  • Even the smaller trucks of most companies are usually over 40,000 lbs.

  • Titan trucks weigh between 12,000 and 25,000 lbs, meaning the negative road impact of Titan’s largest truck is less than half that of typical 3-axle trucks.

  • Impacts of vehicles can be measured using an Equivalent Single Axle Load (ESAL) formula. A standard passenger car has an ESAL of .0007, while a 3-axle garbage truck has an ESAL of 1.0. This means one trip by a 3-axle garbage truck is equivalent to 1,429 car trips.
