Greenline Environmental buys first RCV

Published:  31 December, 2016

Essex-based commercial waste services company Greenline Environmental Ltd has just purchased its first collection vehicle (RCV) marking a new phase in the company’s growth.

Greenline Environmental managing director Darryn Hodges said: ‘It’s a natural progression for us. We work with a wide range of organisations and we are receiving an increasing number of enquiries. This is our first trade waste vehicle and if all goes well we are keen to take on another.’

The Quality Used RCV has a Mercedes Econic chassis and Geesinknorba body with a trade bin lift and was supplied by Refuse Vehicle Solutions Ltd (RVS). It joins Greenline’s existing fleet of five 14 yard-tippers.

RVS started selling quality used vehicles five years ago as an alternative way of buying second-hand refuse trucks. All vehicles go through a 72-point quality check to give customers complete confidence in the vehicles they are purchasing.

Darryn Hughes added: ‘RVS were recommended to me and I can’t fault them in any way. The vehicle is immaculate, the service has been excellent and the whole process has been hassle-free. We will definitely return when we need another vehicle.’

RVS managing director Spencer Law said: ‘As companies like Greenline grow they need to be able to respond quickly to increasing demand. We are delighted that Greenline chose us to provide their first RCV. We hope it’s the first of many!’

Greenline Environmental was established in 2011 and operates 24 hours-a-day providing tailor made solutions for waste management including wait and load collection, emergency waste removal, office clearance, junk removal, missed bin collections, WEEE waste disposal and fly-tipping clearance. Greenline is committed to 100% landfill diversion and has received FORS bronze accreditation for its fleet management.
