The new additions to the fleet comprise six 26-tonne, 6x2 Rear Steer (narrow), Dennis Eagle RCVs with twin pack bodies enabling the collection of multiple waste streams and one standard open back 26-tonne vehicle with a single chamber.

The new vehicles will be used to deliver the company’s £65m contract with North and East Hertfordshire district councils

The vehicles are fitted out with the latest Fleetclear tracking and telematics technology. The software provides an integrated platform to increase safety, efficiency and compliance.

Urbaser, which has its UK division in Cheltenham, has been providing waste collection and street cleansing services for North Hertfordshire (NHDC) and East Herts district councils (EHDC) since 2018.

‘Leasing through Fiveways provides Urbaser with a really cost-effective way of maintaining an efficient and sustainable fleet throughout the life of the contracts we manage,’ said Jose Ramon-Sanchez, operations director UK, Urbaser Limited.

‘In addition to offering unrivalled reliability, these vehicles are fitted with the latest telematics which means we can now accurately monitor driver behaviour and fuel usage. We estimate this will enable us to reduce emissions by a further 10% while maintaining the highest levels of service for our client and the residents of North and East Hertfordshire.’

In addition to the seven contracted vehicles, Fiveways has also supplied an additional vehicle free of charge to cover scheduled services and MOTs.
