Hippowaste expands fleet network

Waste management company Hippowaste has expanded its national fleet network with three new local transport depots in Plymouth, South and West London.

The three additions bring the total number of transport depots in the Hippowaste fleet to 15, making it easier for Hippowaste vehicles to reach customers.

In addition to the three depots, the company has also introduced three 7.5 tonne Isuzu collection vehicles which are designed to collect the company’s Hippobags (used in place of skips) from city centres and smaller roads. Each vehicle is equipped with a crane with a lifting power of 1.6 tonnes and has a carrying capacity of 2.5 tonnes – enough for seven large Hippobags.

Hippowaste managing director Gareth Lloyd Jones said: “More depots and more vehicles in the fleet mean that the Hippowaste service can be more flexible. Not only are we closer to the individual and corporate customer, but also the vehicles will have to travel shorter distances – which means less congestion on the roads and a more environmentally friendly service.”
