The two 19-tonne E-Tech DZE trucks were designed and developed in collaboration with Renault Trucks and mark the start of Recycling Lives’ journey in decarbonising the company’s entire fleet.

The Renault Trucks E-Tech DZE has been fitted with Vision Techniques’ Turnaware, Turnalarm, video recording systems and telematics. The all-electric vehicles will be used in daily operations, servicing commercial and household clients.

Eddie Hollingsworth, head of transport operations at Recycling Lives, said: ‘Our industry is fast-paced and is at the forefront of ensuring collectively we minimise our impact on the environment. Moving to a decarbonised fleet is one way we can do that, but we also need to make sure that safety is paramount.’

Dave Smith, operations manager at Vision Techniques, added: ‘Recycling Lives is truly a ground-breaking business, and we’re proud have our products used on their vehicles and help them on creating a transport fleet that is incredibly safe for its people and the public.’
