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!

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.
