Ellen MacArthur Foundation Showcases Refuse Vehicle Solutions
We are very honoured that the Ellen MacArthur Foundation has chosen to showcase Refuse Vehicle Solutions as an excellent example of the circular economy. This is a generic term for an industrial economy that is restorative and regenerative. A case study about us now features on the Ellen MacArthur website.
The Ellen MacArthur Foundation is a leading charity working to re-design a positive future, through the vision of a circular economy. The founding partners are B&Q, BT/Cisco, National Grid and Renault.
Please take a look at what the foundation does. We hope you will be as inspired as we are.
One of London’s premier waste operators Orion Waste operates a fleet of around 40 vehicles, including roll-on roll-off, skip lorries, caged tippers and small RCV’s. Following a recent surge in demand they approached us for their first 26 tonne RCV.
John Stride, Managing Director, Orion Waste said: “We have never bought a big RCV before so to reduce our capital risk we opted for a used vehicle and I’m glad to say we couldn’t have made a better decision. It has definitely put us off buying a new vehicle in the future.”
The vehicle was fully serviced, MOT’d, LOLER certified, reupholstered, re-sprayed in Orion’s livery and made free of any visual defects before being delivered in less than 6 weeks. It cost less than 25% of the cost of a new vehicle and promises the same operational lifetime.
If you need a vehicle to cover any shortfall in capacity, purchasing a re-manufactured or quality used vehicle can be a much more cost efficient solution. Call us to find out if we have any suitable vehicles in stock.
