    I live on Long Island and know the roads pretty well. From what I read there are alot of truckers that do not want to drive in the NYC area. Are there job opportunities for someone like me to make runs for companies here?

    If you live out of the city like Brooklyn or Long Island then you can make it work. Also, if you are willing to work and are smart with money. Jersey is better due to no tolls entering/exiting and many more jobs.

    I heard trash men in NYC make over $100K a year due to living expenses and union, I would think a local driver would make big bucks up there.

    The DSNY guys do make decent money once they hit top pay and with overtime.
    DOT guys make good money too.
