For some reason I saw a lot of vacuum trucks working near the waterfront last week - just lucky I guess.
1. and 2. October 16, Pardy's had this new Western Star 4700 with Vactor 2100 setting up at pier 21. Pardy's Waste Management is based in Newfoundland, with a branch in Alberta. I had never seen one of their trucks in Halifax before, but it is carrying Nova Scotia plates.
3. October 17, Newalta's Pete was not far away at pier 22.It was wearing hazardous materials placard 1993 indicating flammable liquid.
4. October 18, Atlantic Industrial Cleaners' Kenworth, with another Vactor 2100 was draining light pole bases at pier 9.Note the inscription on the cab door "IOL DEDICATED #7" I guess its services are not currently required by Imperial Oil.
