On Friday afternoon, 54-year-old Dale Biscotti was driving a garbage truck traveling eastbound on SR-36, nearing the Roxie Peconom Campground Road.
For unknown reasons, Mr. Biscotti allowed the vehicle to drift to the right and the right side wheels dropped off the pavement.
The vehicle began to descend the embankment.
Mr. Biscotti turned to the left and managed to keep the vehicle from overturning down the steep embankment.
The vehicle returned to the roadway and began to skid as it crossed both lanes and overturned.
The vehicle descended the ditch north of the roadway where it overturned completely and came to a rest on its wheels while spilling its load of recycling.
Mr. Biscotti sustained only minor injuries and was transported to Banner Lassen Medical Center.
Representatives from Waste Management responded to clean up the recycling load.
