LEGO City Garbage Truck Set Review for MF0

The Bag
So this is one of two Target's Easter poly bags for this season. I wouldn't bother with the Friends one as a side note.

Can you build some sort of creation right away?

Another set I couldn't rattle anything from. -5 points.

Parts 1
Is it below, at, or above the golden ratio? (10 cents per part)

$3.49/48 = 7 cents per part, below the gold ratio for +5

Parts 2
If you can't build something right away, or choose not to, does it have parts you should be able to put into use right away? 

Certainly a few parts in here that have been used for builds but nothing major. I would like to see someone use the trash cans in a build or the blocks with clips. The wheel base might work for a start to a HVA in IO. +5 points

The Set
Does it have more than a handful of immediately useful parts?

The hard question! If you can build something out of it this is usually a yes but you always lean towards no when you can't. I feel torn about this set because I see some fun pieces here...going to bend the rules a bit and go with 0 points.

Total: We have an A- set leaning toward B+. I like the set it self but it is destined to be torn apart into the sorting bins. Again like to see someone use those trash cans or the 1x2 blocks with center clips.
