ELECTRIC TRUCKS ARE COLLECTING WASTE IN AUCKLAND

11/01/2019

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. EV collection trucks are silent and have zero emissions. They're the perfect vehicle for servicing clients in high-density environments like the inner city apartments and retirement villages.

Our waste collection vehicles feature innovations to reduce noise and pollution, such as engine off and electrically powered bin emptying and compaction. Dual compartment vehicles reduce vehicle numbers on the road and in turn, our environmental footprint. Currently, we operate two fully-electric waste collection vehicles and our fleet vehicles are almost entirely European tier 5 compliant

All the waste processing facilities including our EV charging stations at Green Gorilla are 100% electric sourced from CarboNZero certified electricity.

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.
