Waste truck makes debut

Forge waste & Recycling 2000

Leeds-based waste management company Forge Waste & Recycling has introduced what it says is a state-of-the-art truck.

The vehicle marks five years of operation by Forge Waste. The business was set up by brothers Harvey and Fraser Mills to clear out old student housing in Headingley. It now has a team of 19 who deal with domestic and commercial waste through collections and skip hire.

Its Van Schijndel VSA2 vehicle was supplied by Global Recycling Solutions. Peter Banks, managing director of Global, said: “To work with a company with the experience and ambition that Harvey Mills and the Forge team have is the perfect way to show off the VSA2 to a UK market hungry for a new face in this sector.”

The business has also introduced an integrated handheld system for drivers, which connects to the weighing hardware installed on its vehicles, allowing it to get live weight data on every bin emptied and to know instantly if a bin is overweight.

According to Forge, initial calculations suggest it will be invoicing an extra £1,500 a week due to heavy bins.
