Food collection vehicles added as demand increases

RiverRidge in Northern Ireland has added two food collection vehicles from Stewart Commercials to its fleet of 95 vehicles. The recent investment highlights the company’s pledge to the ever-increasing demand for food waste recycling.

Tony Kirkpatrick, transport and logistics director, said: “As regulations continue to intensify the vehicle model choice was critical, and to help evolve our food waste collection strategy we have purchased two MacPac 110S vehicles.”

Their 11cu m capacity is designed to make more collections per route. A compaction ratio of 3:1 lowers the centre of gravity, reducing wind drag and in turn lowering fuel costs.

Safety features full interlocking on loading doors, bin lifter and tailgate. Operatives work at the side of vehicle, clear from the rear impact zone and easily visible to the driver at all times.

The MacPacs included an on-board weighing system so that operators know exactly what each bin weighs and the total weight in the vehicle.
