Bristol Waste Company (BWC), a wholly owned subsidiary of Bristol City Council, has awarded municipal vehicle hire specialist Collett Transport Services a contract to supply a fleet of waste and recycling vehicles.
The two-year deal (with the option to extend) comprises a fleet of 10 new vehicles: seven 26-tonne 6x2 Dennis Eagle rear steer narrow chassis with Olympus OL19 narrow body and a Terberg OmniDel standard lift, along with three 18-tonne 4x2 Dennis Eagle narrow chassis with Olympus OL10 narrow body and Terberg OmniDel. The first six vehicles were delivered in October with the remaining four arriving before Christmas.
Iain Fortune, BWC fleet manager, said: “We are keen to use the best vehicles and equipment available: those that offer high reliability and low emissions. The vehicles offered by CTS exceeded our expectations and the contract offers excellent value.”
BWC was recently awarded a 10-year deal with the city council to provide waste collection, street cleansing and winter maintenance services, including collection and disposal. BWC has more than 180 vehicles and collects 140,000 tonnes of waste and recycling a year.
