Scottish waste management provider the Binn Group processes and recycles waste materials from all areas of the country from its Glenfarg, Perthshire, base.
It has made a multi-million pound investment in plant and vehicles, including upgrade and expansion of its RCV fleet. Recent acquisitions include four Farid Hillend Engineering (FHE) PowerLink 16cu m refuse vehicles, complete with UTL container hoists and 4cu m UniPods mounted on a Scania chassis.
The UniPod allows up to three separate waste streams to be collected by one vehicle on one collection tour. Binn Group has chosen the two waste stream versions.
Binn fleet manager Allan Brown said: “We are confident these vehicles will allow us more flexibility and will prove just as reliable as their BigBite.”
UniPod is a single-chamber, nearside loading and off side tipping non-compaction Pod, suitable for a range of waste streams that require to be collected separately from non-recyclables. It is a completely sealed unit and ideally suited for the collection of food waste, glass and dry mixed recycling waste streams.
Designed to be fitted in conjunction with the full range of FHE mini-compactors and rear loaders, the UniPod is available in narrow and standard widths, and suits chassis ranging from 7.5 to 32-tonne GVW.
To enable true flexibility, the standard UniPod can be supplied with either a comb lift to handle container sizes ranging from 120- 360-litre, a trough pannier lift or both.
