New fleet of vehicles from Hippowaste

A new fleet of smaller collection vehicles have been introduced by waste management firm, Hippowaste, in order to collect waste from city centres and smaller roads where access is restricted. The new vehicles, that have a capacity of 2.5 tonnes, were purpose-built with a bespoke design handle to make the service more accessible to householder and business customers in densely populated areas such as London. They will also be used to collect loose waste from construction sites. We already operate a UK mainland collection service and endeavour to fulfil every customers collection, said Hippowaste head of operations Andrew Geffryes. The new vehicles are strategically located around the UK and there are currently a handful in operation. As the company grows I anticipate that we will be adding more of this type of vehicle to our fleet as they are ideal in city centres. The vehicles also use an automatic gearbox which helps to reduce fuel use by preventing drivers over-revving the engine. The extension to the fleet takes the total number of vehicles to over 40 and is part of national resource and logistical expansion activities within the company.
