Rubbish collection lorry at work. Vehicle reverses, rubbish containers are loaded and lifted on, and rubbish bags are compacted with an excruciating squeal. The hiss of the hydraulic mechanism shows spectral content right up to the 22 KHz limit for this kind of WAV.

    Cheers, I work for the local council as a bin man and I'm also a guitarist/songwriter in my spare time. I'm going to create a track called "Trash Man Blues" and I shall use part of this clip at the beginning of the song, I shall credit the clip in the notes on my Soundcloud page, many thanks.

    Nice one – it will appear as part of the sound of a space ship docking umbilical in Episode 10 of Ad Astral “The Lighthouse Keeper” due out around 1.2.2011. Credits will be in the shownotes.
    Many thanks.
