Did You Know?
Hero garbage truck was rented from a yard of decommissioned service vehicles in Sacramento, but the actors never got a chance to drive it in the film. Trick photography, "stunt" drivers and a replicated cabin built inside of a "Budget" rental truck were used to create an impression that the guys are actually driving it. See more
You're a garbageman too, man, the only difference is you have an Oscar!
