I can't get why sometimes we use "every", and why we use "each".
I understand that "each" means every one individually, but it doesn't help when the question arise about what is better to use of them. For me there is no difference. Each (every) choice is ok. For example, I would put "every" for every this case. Or maybe "each".
1) We can be hearing arriving of a garbage truck each(every) morning.
2) Every (each) morning we can hear the same.
3) I read every evening.
4) Smile every morning!

Dear asornunez,

I'm sorry I was a little short.
If you try to use Google, Yahoo or another search engine,
it is not necessary to make complete sentences.
So "The difference between each and every" can become 'each vs every' or 'each every difference'.

I hope I have made it clearer.

So,my examples need "every"?
But if one says, "I swam each the hot day in the lake",it is better to use "each"?

It would be better to say: "I swam in the lake each hot day." Think

ok!I agree! But in the same time "I swam in the lake every hot day" is ok too.
I do my morning exerсises each day.(day by day)
I do my morning exercises every day.(without break)
One moment more: Why don't we use article after "each' and "very" like after "such"?
Such a sunny day is today!
Each sunny day we spend on the beach.

I agree with leon. Don't forget it often depends on the context:

Not every day this summer was fine but each hot day we swam in the lake.

As to your sentences, 'every' is right in each case.
The first one, however, doesn't sound very good.

1) We can hear the garbage truck (arrive) every morning.
