Front loaders generally service commercial businesses using large waste containers with lids known as dumpsters. Rear loaders have an opening at the back of the truck that accepts trash bags or the contents of bins into it. A sand cleaning machine drags a sifting device across the beach sand to remove trash. A garbage scow is used to transport garbage across waterways. It is often towed by tugboats. A landfill site is used for the disposal of waste materials and is the oldest form of waste treatment.
