Australia: Garbage trucks off the road across Sydney following fatal accident in Adelaide

Rubbish collections have been suspended across Sydney after one of Australia’s largest waste management companies pulled its entire fleet off the road following a fatal accident in South Australia.

The decision by Transpacific to withdraw all of its Cleanaway trucks from service to check the safety of its national fleet will affect thousands of residents across the Burwood, Canada Bay, Ashfield, Parramatta, Hornsby, Bankstown, Canterbury, Hawkesbury and the Hills Shire council areas. The company announced late on Tuesday that all of its 2800 trucks would be taken off the road after one of its vehicles smashed into three stationary cars waiting at traffic lights in Adelaide on Monday afternoon.
A 41-year-old woman and a 56-year-old man were killed.

The 28-year-old male truck driver and a 48-year-old woman are both in a critical condition in hospital. Police on Tuesday said they were investigating whether brake failure had caused the crash at the "high risk location". The grounding will not be felt equally across the affected council areas.

For instance, while Parramatta Council relies on the company for its general waste, recycling and green waste collections, Hawkesbury only uses it for bulky waste clean-ups. The Hills Shire Council advised its residents to keep bins out until they were collected.
