Apparently this is what happens when there's a fire in the truck.

A Recycling Truck Dumped Trash On A Montreal Street… And It Blended In Perfectly

A truck had to empty its contents onto a Montreal street on Thursday in a display we're convinced is a divine metaphor for the last two years. Jacob Greenblatt of the Instagram page @mtl_stories captured the moment on video.

His subsequent TikTok post has racked up almost a thousand likes.

The unceremonious dump took place at the corner of avenue Casgrain and rue Bernard in the Plateau-Mont-Royal.

A spokesperson for the City of Montreal confirmed that this is standard procedure when a fire is detected in a truck.

In such cases, workers come around to pick up the mountain of waste using tractor/loaders, ensuring no piece of garbage is left behind, the spokesperson said.
