Terrific fun. And very nicely composed, plus good use of relatively shallow depth of field - there's enough background information without it getting in the way. But would benefit from a few minor adjustment.
It's a tad overexposed, and sorting that out would give a much more substantial, 3-D feel.
It desperately needs a few degrees rotation clockwise, with maybe a bit of skewing. Look at the lamp post - it's the vertical nearest to the centre of the frame that needs to be true.
Crop some of that white base out, and/or maybe clone some more wood chips in to fill out bottom left.
I feel a Mod coming on...

Thanks Moira
I had set it up and taken it very quickly, so didnt do much to it at all. Cropping/cloneing and straightening has made a world of difference to it.

Better photo!!

Cheers
Ciara

The main thing with something like this is - avoid distraction foreground, take the eye straight into the action. Glad the Mod is approved!

A fun image and a fun title, Ciara. The yellow trucks are eye-catching and stand out well from the background.
I am assuming these wood chips were placed in the street, and it's the white container that we are seeing at the bottom. Moira's modification eliminates that, removing the "container" idea and placing your subjects within the street environment as if they are working with the wood chips there. Very good. I like that.
Considering you set it up and took it quickly, you did well.
Since all of the vehicles are facing to the left, a little more space in front of them would have helped the composition, providing them with space to move into.
Pamela.
