Romaquip secures new local authority contracts for Kerb-Sort vehicles

Vehicle manufacturer Romaquip has added four more local authorities to its growing portfolio of contracts for its Kerb-Sort recycling collection vehicles.

Belfast City Council and Lisburn and Castlereagh Council in Northern Ireland will be jointly running a trial scheme for the multi-compartment vehicles, while the Vale of Glamorgan and Pembrokeshire councils in Wales have also recently awarded contracts to Romaquip.

Romaquip's Kerb-Sort vehicles are equipped with multiple compartments for source segregation of waste.
It is a strong start to 2019 for Romaquip, which also recently signed agreements to provide Kerb-Sort vehicles to West Devon Borough Council, Copeland Borough Council and Torridge District Council. Matt Patanden, UK Sales Manager for Romaquip, commented: “Our Kerb-Sort vehicle is now recognised as the market leader in this sector, the vehicle of choice for councils and contractors that operate the kerbside collection service. We have achieved this position by continuously developing our Kerb-Sort vehicle to maintain Kerb-Sort’s reputation as the most user-friendly, efficient, reliable and cheapest-to-run vehicle in the sector and also one that guarantees users the lowest total life costs in the industry.

“The volume of enquiries we have received over the past eighteen months shows that councils are taking their responsibilities seriously and looking at ensuring they are collecting in the most effective and efficient way and, in all cases, the most profitable way they can.

“With a busy vehicle demonstration diary ahead this year these are certainly exciting times for Romaquip and it’s nice to be able to play a small part in demonstrating to local authorities the possibilities and potential of thinking inside the box.”
