Suez Recycling and Recovery UK has invested in a fleet of Mercedes-Benz Econic trucks to provide a more streamlined domestic and trade refuse collection service for Doncaster Council.
Collections are now commingled, with all recyclable materials except glass being compacted together.
The Econic 2630LL models are powered by advanced straight-six engines which transmit their 220kW (299hp) outputs to the road via six-speed fully automatic Allison gearboxes. They were supplied by S&B Commercials.
Most of the trucks have Faun Variopress VP22 bodies with Zoeller Rotary 3 lifters, and are being allocated to domestic, green and trade waste collections. The rest are specified for recycling collections, and fitted with Faun Selectapress SP20 bodies and Zoeller Rotary 3 Triple lifts.
The bifold glass passenger door contributes to the vehicle’s excellent visibility and easy access.
