Ours is a bad rendition of "Fur Elise" by Beethoven.
Yes, the garbage truck plays Beethoven!
I saw a report about that on German television a few years ago!!! I thought at the time that it was very original. I'm used to the ice cream / water ice trucks in the U.S., and the trucks in Germany that sell fresh produce or eggs in the big cities - they usually have some sort of music recording.
