Two wastes in one pass

Biffa Municipal has deployed a new fleet of specialist collection vehicles worth nearly £2m to support the Isle of Anglesey County Council’s plans to increase recycling and reduce costs.

Anglesey’s collection system is based on weekly collections of food waste and dry recyclables through a one-pass system, along with alternate week collections of refuse and green waste in separate wheeled bins.

The new recycling fleet, all based on DAF LF45 chassis with Romaquip Kerbsort bodies, means that the same vehicle can collect food waste and dry recyclables in one go, maximising collection efficiency and reducing road miles and diesel consumption.

The number of vehicles has been cut from 15 to 10, and operational mileage is predicted to be reduced by around 49,000 miles a year, saving some 15,000 litres of diesel.
