You do see the occasional front-end loader, like this one. This is how the city picks up its trash. The front-end loader scoops up all the waste that people have (hopefully) deposited in that concrete 'bin' to the left and then drops it into one of the waiting trucks, like the white one in the center of the photo.
More often though, people just pile up their trash at a central point in their neighborhood and sometimes a tractor with a wagon pulls up, several men will hop off, and they shovel it all up into the wagon by hand. Thank goodness that people in a country like this do not produce the mountains of waste that Americans do, or else this whole city would be feet-deep in trash.
