PITTSBURGH...Garbage collectors often have to use their trucks to lift and empty large commercial garbage bins. This task can be tedious and time-consuming. "Tired of not being able to get the front-loading forks exactly where they need to be in order to grip commercial garbage bins, I decided to design a better way to perform this task," said an inventor and sanitation engineer from Brentwood, Calif.

The patent-pending POCKET INDICATOR is a device that facilitates the front-loading of commercial garbage bins. It eliminates the need for guesswork in aligning arms/forks with the bin’s pockets. As a result, it saves time and effort.

Designed to promote efficiency and peace of mind, the device can be built into new garbage trucks or added to existing garbage trucks. Though it's designed primarily for sanitation companies, it's also beneficial to trucking companies and forklift companies.

The original design was submitted to the San Francisco office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
