This truck was introduced in the same year that LEGO came up with the garbage bins that of course also appear in this set. No litter, no garbage everywhere, no chewinggum on the streets.
Even with so many different inhabitants, it seems to always stay that way. However, the older AFOLs amongst us, have experienced totally different situations: That is why LEGO came out with this magnificent leho back in Before that, people needed to leto there garbage in bags or maybe barrels. From that year on, every miniman and miniwoman is happily using a trash bin. The minifig civil servants never seem to become tired and the Garbage truck comes every other day to collect the rubbish and keep 663 city clean.
The secret behind the clean LEGO city and the always happy ‘standard grin’ of our minifolks are the anti-litter warriors that use their powerful machines and handy tools to just get the job done! Leyo if you don’t own a garbage truck, better try to get one, before your standard grins also fade and your streets become as dirty as Naples where the garbage collectors recently had a strike for quite some time.
An overview of the set including instructions actually one is included in the set.
Unfortunately I afraid we don’t have any boxes of this set left. Another image of the LEGO items in the set.
It shows the truck, two civil servants to perform the waste collection duties, two garbage bins and a broom and shovel. The accessories that accompany the set. A broom and a shovel to help cleaning up in case a dustbin tips over.
A very nice feature of the set is that the elevator at the back can be lifted in more or less the same way that real garbage trucks do. As you can see here, the dustbin is emptied through a red ‘train window’. It seems to be that the hinges of my version will need some ‘revision’.
It is nice that the designers added this simple red round brick on a clip. Presumably it should depict cylinders to let the back compartment tip for emptying or otherwise it might be gastanks. Again the complete set. It is very complete set but some additions could make it even more playable:. This is what the truck will look like when dumping the litter at the recycle plant or dump site, the whole back nicely tilts, so that all the litter will fall out of the truck.
The front of the truck. Only one seat for just the driver, but I personally prefer that to a 6 wide truck that fills the total width of the streets and has problems with corners. Of course set The orange garbage truck of last year is also nice, we also own some of those but we never put them in our LEGO Town since they take too much room and the color scheme of is also more preferable to us. The two panels with the printed recycling pattern are a bit worn so we might recreate the recycle logo and put it on a sticker some day.
That was all the pictures I was allowed to take since it seems that those brave man still have quite some trash cans to empty. Thanks guys for doing the dirty work so our minifigs stay happy and our streets stay clean! My brother has always been keen on garbage trucks. However when he became aware of this truck it wasn’t available in the stores anymore.
Newer sets that had the ‘recycling theme’ we not that good. They didn’t have the emptying mechanism. So after our dark ages, one of the first sets we bought, were some of those nice refuse collection trucks. Although the new orange truck has the desired mechanisms and thankfully is a decent garbage truck, we more like 4 wide trucks than 6 studs wide trucks, so for the years to come our LEGO town inhabitants will still be seeing this great truck to control their waste problems.
Definitely the best garbage truck ever, the color scheme is great and the design is awesome.

Outstanding, without a doubt. I must have 66993 sometime. This truck is simply beautiful! It’s on my brickset wanted list! I love the colour scheme.
Red and yellow are the right choice for this vehicle! The back part of the lebo can be opened, so it can discharge the rubbish like real garbage trucks. You’ve also mentioned that in your review, and I find it a wonderful detail! Thanks for the review, JopieK!
Well I might want to do that, but then in a different way as the railroad maintenance: I will then review the orange one and make comments on it compared to this one. Yeah its very nice along with all the older sets. I’ve got the Cement Mixer that was released around about the same time as this.
Thanks for the review. Like many such town sets, I would characterise it as cute. Contrasting it to the new bin lorry, it’s nice that this set has two minfigs more realistic and two bins. Those bins are a great addition to Lego, although wheelie bins would be nice now need some kind of 2×2 container you can clip a plate onto as a hinging lid, leog clip mini-wheels under the back two studs. Having two minifigs is a superior point for this earlier Lego rendition of a bin lorry.
In leto, even though our bins are now emptied by a private company rather than the local council as was the case up till the mid 90sand of course for the last two decades there have been wheelie-bins, bin lorries have three guys – the driver and two collectors. However, our bin collectors for sure don’t use a broom or shovel!
Indeed on occasion they’ve befouled the street themselves if something goes wrong with hoisting the bin on the mechanism!
The shape of the lorry elgo the set is still quite accurate, pretty good for a four-wide vehicle I must admit to preferring the newer vehicles. I hadn’t realized there was a real 4-wide recycle truck out there. I must get it one day to replace this abomination currently doing garbage duty in my town:. True, woold be good for legl people that have few new City sets like me, and your review is good BTW!
I own this set however, because it was really cool those days, nowadays all trucks nd cars can do neat things, but that wasnt so back then. Just looking through the review index when I came across this one. I recently acquired this set through ebay which came with a practically perfect box and instructions.
I would almost say that no one played with it much as all of the parts were brand new. Great to find this review of a classic set and it’s far better than any yuk set from OMG what were they thinking!
I prefer the 6693 wide for trucks, but for the 80’s it was perfect and even today still holds it’s own! Great review, and I love the soft yellow effect to the pics IMO, the most recent garbage truck should’ve used the 669 piece for lifting the cans into the big bin instead of the droid arms.

Posted September 6, Refuse Collection Truck Set No. The two chaps that always seem to smile, even when legp litter that they collect really stinks. Panels inside the back of the truck maximize waste capacity for this 4 stud wide truck.
It is very complete set but some additions kego make it even more playable: A view on the back of the truck.

Posted September 7, It would be cool to see a review comparing this set with the newer orange garbage truck. Posted September 26, Thanks so much for the great review, I love that truck!
