Having elected to revise the way it collects dry recyclables on behalf of Slough Borough Council, Enterprise – one of the UK's leading providers of environmental services – has specified a fleet of 10 new general compaction RCVs that have been supplied by specialist vehicle provider, Dennis Eagle.
Serving to replace the current method of collecting dry recyclables kerbside, the new Dennis Eagle P2-20 bodied RCVS – complete with Terberg OmniDEL bin lifts and powered by the rear steer Elite 6 x 2 chassis – have been supplied with full contract maintenance that is being coordinated by Dennis Eagle's service centre in Croydon. Operationally, the new RCVs are being deployed to accommodate a waste stream where card and paper, plastics, cans and glass are still be collected weekly but now in 240 litre wheeled bins.
Commenting on behalf of Enterprise, Operations Director, Dave McGill said: “The new Dennis Eagle RCVs will enable us to increase the efficiency with which we will be able to collect and recycle what is an important waste stream within Slough. We enjoy a close and effective working relationship with Dennis Eagle having partnered with them on a number of key waste management and recycling contracts. Their RCVs provide us not only with excellent payloads but outstanding levels of reliability in the process.”
Currently being phased into operation, the highly visual fleet newcomers feature a red council livery that incorporates a joint working logo. Dry recyclables collected will be transferred to the state-of-the-art Grundon MRF in neighbouring Colnbrook. With the new vehicles fully operational, the Enterprise Slough RCV fleet will total 19.
