The Terberg Orus is a compact satellite collection RCV that provides an alternative solution for the collection of organic materials. The vehicle offers a leakproof watertight body with optimised compaction ratio's for dense organic waste.

In addition to its smooth internal body, which promotes a clean unloading operation, and an integral bin lift that provides a highly efficient collection operation the Terberg Orus boast a number of advantages including outstanding manoeuvrability in narrow and/or confined spaces.

Commenting on the expansion of Fiveways’ fleet the company’s head of development, Emma Cheesman, said: ‘The requirement for local authorities in England to provide separate, weekly food waste collections is likely to increase pressure on budgets which are often already stretched. Leasing dedicated food waste collection vehicles such as the Terberg Orus can provide a cost-effective solution in both the short and long term. This first vehicle will soon be servicing the residents of Lewisham and we expect high levels of demands as we take delivery of the remaining nine.'

Currently only around half of UK local authorities offer a dedicated food waste collection service. More detail on mandatory food waste collection requirements, and plans to improve consistent collection services for other waste streams, are expected soon in the Government’s response to its ‘Consultation on Consistency in Household and Business Recycling in England’.
