ELECTRIC TRUCKS ARE COLLECTING WASTE IN AUCKLAND
SHHH... YOU MAY HAVE SEEN (BUT NOT HEARD) OUR LATEST FULLY ELECTRIC WASTE COLLECTION TRUCK!
Our first EV truck has been a success, so we've recently invested in a 2nd vehicle!
Green Gorilla EV collection trucks are silent and have zero emissions, making them the perfect vehicle for servicing high-density environments like apartment buildings. The electric power train generates much less vibration, heat and noise, creating driver-friendly work conditions and a smoother, smoother, and quiet truck than diesel vehicles.
No fossil fuels or emissions are involved in their day-to-day operations. Like all our electricity at Green Gorilla, it's 100% renewable and carboNZero certified electricity sourced from wind, hydro and solar electricity by the excellent folk at Ecotricity. Green Gorilla operate two EV collection trucks and eight electric sales and operations vehicles. We also have EV charging stations at our operations base in Onehunga to support these vehicles.
EV TRUCKS ARE ONE PART OF OUR COMPANY'S JOURNEY
Our entire operation is powered from 100% renewable and carboNZero certified electricity sourced from wind, hydro and solar electricity by the good folk at Ecotricity. Our facilities operate with collected rainwater and we even host honey bee hives at our Onehunga facility.

EV TECHNOLOGY IN WASTE MANAGEMENT
Green Gorilla EV trucks are designed to operate around apartments and high-density residential environments. In these environments, zero air and low noise pollution are highly appreciated. EV trucks are genuine low emission, and low noise transport options as Auckland becomes congested with increased road traffic. Our age care, lifestyle village and retirement community customers have commented that the EV trucks are a pleasant experience in their environments.
Suppose you have never driven an EV car or truck. In that case, we can tell you the electric power train generates much less vibration, heat and noise than a standard fossil fuel combustion engine. Green Gorilla has started our EV and EV technology journey and is excited to deliver the benefits to Auckland waste and recycling collections.
Auckland facility and property managers are enthusiastic that Green Gorilla are committed to sustainable innovations and technologies. We have also invested in EV charging infrastructure to get our electric trucks back on the road as fast as possible, so they are collecting waste in Auckland.
