The per capita per day requirement of water in Indian cities is 135 liters.

· Major application of municipal trucks that can be seen around the world is waste collection and disposal. Every year on an average, nearly 2 billion tons of waste is generated due to various activities.

With the rise in population, consumption of goods has exponentially increased resulting in large scale generation of waste. Countries across the world, developed and developing are investing heavily in garbage collection and disposal and receiving funds and loans from international organizations such as the United Nations and World Bank to strengthen and improve landfill sites. For instance, Liberia invested USD 10.5 million to develop sanitary landfills and improve the efficiency and effectiveness of waste collection networks.

In the light of high emphasis on cleanliness and global commitments regarding the reduction of population, many municipalities are buying a waste collection and disposal trucks. Among waste collection and disposal vehicles, compactor and bulk refuse carriers are commonly used and play an important role in solid waste management programs. With the adoption of new technology such as GPS, sensors, telematics, etc. it becomes easier to improve the efficiency of collection and dumping operation and safety while operating garbage truck. Technology firms and startups such as OnePlus systems, Compology, etc. are producing ultrasonic sensor-based, image-based waste monitoring systems.
