New rapid response service in waste management for London

UK waste management company Bywaters has taken delivery of two 3.5-tonne cage-tipper vehicles to provide a rapid response in difficult traffic conditions. When local authorities, hospitals, universities or London City businesses need rapid removal of unplanned waste either for a missed collection, an office clearance or in response to fire, flood or an environmental incident, Bywaters can now deploy the vehicles. The vehicles are small enough to travel through London’s busy traffic more efficiently than larger trucks, without the hindrance of width, height or parking restrictions.

The two cage-tipper vehicles are the latest additions to Bywaters’ £7-million fleet of 62 vehicles, comprising 25 dustcarts, five tail-lift vehicles, 13 skip-loaders, and 17 hook-loaders. All vehicles meet Euro 5/6 emission standards (achieving up to 96 per cent reduction compared to non-Euro 5/6 vehicles) and feature quieter operations. The fleet operates from Bywaters’ facility at Bow, East London, which is licensed to process 650,000 tonnes of waste material a year and has one of the UK’s largest materials recovery facilities.

Commenting on the addition to the fleet, Mark Harbard, Associate Director at Bywaters said: “London’s historic streets were not designed for today’s traffic and width, height and parking restrictions can hinder collections. When time is critical, these vehicles enable us to be more responsive to customer needs and able to offer an improved, more flexible service.”
