They are using the trucks to blend in. I have seen it with my very eyes.”
Harumi to Garmadon, "How to Build a Dragon"

The garbage trucks are trucks used for waste collection in Ninjago City. During Garmadon's reign, they served as cover and transport for the Resistance.

History

Scavengers

A group of garbage workers were taking out the trash when the Vermillion took the entire truck with them.

True Potential

Two waste collectors were picking up garbage when they hear a creepy sound. They run away out of fear and Garmadon appears out of the shadow. Later, he uses the garbage truck to crash into the police station and freed Harumi.

Firstbourne

The Elemental Masters used the garbage truck to evacuate Lloyd, Nya, and Dareth from being captured by the Sons of Garmadon.

Iron & Stone

The Elemental Masters parked the garbage trucks inside the Garbage depot. Skylor then commented that they can travel anywhere because the S.O.G. won't suspect the garbage trucks for holding anything suspicious.

Radio Free Ninjago

The Elemental Masters used the garbage trucks to head near Borg Tower and complete a mission. After successfully getting their message across Ninjago City, they head out, but Harumi spotted their getaway vehicles.

How to Build a Dragon

Harumi mentioned the Elemental Masters using garbage trucks to disguise themselves to Garmadon.
