Taking in the Trash is a mission in Grand Theft Auto IV, given to Niko Bellic by Pegorino Family capo Ray Boccino from Drusilla's, a restaurant located in the Little Italy district of Algonquin, Liberty City. Ray got Ashley Butler to get The Lost Brotherhood to rip some diamonds off some some club owner and hide the ice in some garbage bags to be picked up by Ray. He wants you to go to a guy named Luca who works for Liberty Sanitation Department (LSD) and pick up the diamond-laced trash.


Follow the waypoint to find a Trashmaster parked in an alleyway with a group of three sanitation guys standing around. Get introduced. Objective here is to drive the Trashmaster to wherever Luca tells you to go, picking up garbage bags filled with trash and "ice."

The first diamond pickup is in Chinatown. Stop at the waypoint at the side of the street. Luca's boys will get off and pick up bags and carry them to the garbage truck. Be sure to open the door to the truck's compactor by pressing the button the little tutorial tells you to press. Luca's boys will toss the bags in and get back onto the back of the truck.

The second diamond pickup is on H Street. Stop at the waypoint and wait for Luca's boys to pick up the bags full of ice and toss them into the back of the truck. After the last guy gets on the back of the truck, a cutscene is triggered.

It seems somebody has caught wind of your activity and has sent a car with armed occupants after you. Drive to Fishmarket South to drop off your load. Luca's boys will shoot back at the pursuing car once it starts shooting at you. Shoot back at the car since the Trashmaster is rather slow, mentioned by Niko and Luca during the getaway. Dropping grenades just as you go around a corner is a good way to take them out quickly leaving you a simple drive back. Don't worry about getting attention from the LCPD because when you make it to the waypoint on the map, the heat dies down anyways.


  • There is a mission in The Lost and Damned where Johnny steals the diamonds and putting the diamonds in the garbage can. Where Niko, Luca and his men can't pick the diamonds up in the can.
  • Niko recieves a LSD uniform to wear during the mission, which is then stored to his wardrobe. It is exactly the same as the one worn by regular LSD workers.
