Fleet adds to recycling

Specialist fleet services

Hambleton District Council has revamped its recycling service.

It will see an increased range of items picked up at the kerbside through a commingled service using a wheelie bin and a box. And materials are collected using a new fleet of refuse collection vehicles (RCVs).

In June 2015 the authority awarded a 10-year contract to longstanding vehicle partner Specialist Fleet Services (SFS), to supply and maintain its entire fleet for waste collection, recycling and street cleansing services.

Some new vehicles are already in service across North Yorkshire, and additional vehicles, including RCVs, sweepers, vans and a mobile crane, will be delivered as part of a planned replacement programme.

Council leader Mark Robson said: “The service is already seeing an increase in the amount of recycling we are collecting – we have been staggered by the amount left at the kerbside and by the quality.”
