An Eco-friendly Truck that is Powered by a Trash Generated Electricity

We all know that mountains of landfills have the ability to produce electricity. In British town Huddersfield, people have used the ability of their landfills to produce electricity by powering up trucks. Because of this, the town boasts off their trash collecting trucks that are powered by none other than by their trash itself. A 3.5 ton modified transit Smith Edison truck is incorporated with a 40 kilowatt hour lithium-ion battery pack. This battery pack now gives the truck the ability to run a decent speed of 50mph and has a range of 100 miles after a single eight hour charge time.
