Do all Garbage Trucks leak Hydraulic oil?

Next tme you're driving around town, especially on your own street, check out the hydraulic oil stain where the city Garbage trucks pick up your trash can or dumpster.
I can't find one street which doesn't have these stains.
The trucks leak every single time they raise a trash container. How many times does this happen in a day, a week, a year?
How do I get on the bidders list to supply hydraulic fluid to the City of Carlsbad? I wonder how much each truck uses in a year?
It must be an enormous amount, and I'm sure it washes into the Pecos river when it rains.
Maybe its the cause of the Golden Algae that kills off the fish.
Hey, city council, are you listening?

I work with Hydraulic Cylinders and hoses as a living and the leak more than likely is coming from a leaky cylinder or the hoses might have gone bad. The reason you see the oil on the ground where it stops is when the Hydraulic Pump is pumping all the oil throughout the system. If you get a License Plate number and call EPA ( Environmental Protection Agency ) You could possibly get 10,000 Dollars just for that. In another state I had a friend see somebody leak some R134A ( Refrigerant for Cars, Refrigerators Etc... ) THey called EPA and reported and got money for that. Please take this step to clean up the Carlsbad Community.

You can call EPA on individuals using it as weed control method also... 10,000 a pop. Everybody needs the money right now.
