Leicestershire waste management business AE Burgess & Sons is enhancing its commercial waste services with the purchase of a 26-tonne Mercedes Econic Dennis Olympus refuse vehicle from Refuse Vehicle Solutions (RVS) under its RediTruck service.
AE Burgess runs two MRFs in Leicester and recycles more than 96% of the waste it collects.
Director Rob Gundle said: “We are growing steadily and adding new jobs to our rounds every week, so we needed an ultra-reliable vehicle to manage the longer distance collections on the outskirts of Leicestershire.”
The truck has the latest bin- weighing and vehicle safety technology, including camera recording and reverse radar.
Spencer Law, RVS managing director, said: “We introduced RediTruck because we identified a need for quick turnaround, ready for work refuse vehicles. Companies need to respond quickly to new customer demand or to replace old vehicles in their fleet.”
