FLASHBACK: Local Garbologists show us how it was done

This video, uploaded by the Newcastle & The Hunter Valley, Now And Then On Film YouTube channel, takes us back to a time when these fit young men, often shirtless, would run around the streets picking up the bins, waving at children and throwing a few extra bits in the truck for a cheeky carton of throw downs!
