New RCV fleet is easy to manoeuvre


Lichfield & Tamworth Joint Waste Service is taking delivery of a replacement fleet of 22 vehicles that will start collecting recycling and waste from 76,000 homes across Lichfield and Tamworth.

The vehicles comprise 18 x 26-tonne Mercedes/Faun refuse collection vehicles (RCVs) along with three DAF/ NTM and one Mitsubishi/Faun 7.5-tonne RCV.

Specialist Fleet Services (SFS) is the vehicle provider, and Lichfield District Council is a new customer for the company. The contract includes maintenance of vehicles via the council’s own workshop.

The trucks are compact and easy to manoeuvre, and fuel efficient due to their clean-burn Euro 6 engines. They also have the latest safety packages, including cycle awareness, a 360° camera system and other driver aids.
