Specialist trucks increase service capacity

Yorkshire-based food waste recycler ReFood has invested almost £700,000 in expanding its collection fleet.

The company collects food waste from retailers, hotels and restaurants. It is currently doubling capacity to 160,000 tonnes at its anaerobic digestion plant in Doncaster as part of a £6m project.

It has taken delivery of 10 Volvo trucks with specialist bodies to increase service capacity on collection rounds, which cover a 50-mile radius of Doncaster. Each vehicle is able to carry 44 wheelie bins, exchanging clean bins for ones full of food waste as part of its bin-swap offer.

The investment is part of an ongoing expansion programme. ReFood plans to invest in a further 50 vehicles across its business to service its sites in Widnes, Nuneaton and Dagenham, as well as replacing some of its older models.
