In this paper a method of efficiency evaluation of work-ing cycle of Refuse Collection Vehicle is presented. Using real world data, two representative working cycles were analyzed. Total cycle efficiency was calculated, as well as the efficiency of particular cycle phases. Then, energy needed to collect, energy needed to compact the waste and energy from fuel were compared. Measured and calculated values vs time were shown on the diagrams illustrating hydraulic system parameters and the real
