Some of the oldest and most established manufacturers of garbage trucks are Mack, Heil, Peterbilt and Freightliner. The Mack and Heil companies were created over a century ago and continue to make refuse trucks that are used in many countries around the world.
Heil focuses exclusively on manufacturing refuse trucks and has the largest selection of these companies. Heil offers many versions of front-loading, side-loading and rear-loading refuse trucks, along with multi-compartment vehicles and roll-off hoists. Heil's front-loading trucks are typically used for larger residential and commercial waste removal, while the side- and rear-loading trucks are used for smaller residential refuse removal.
