Amey renews recycling collection fleet for Isle of Wight11 August 2016

Public services provider Amey has taken delivery of seven new recycling collection vehicles for its contract with the Isle of Wight Council.

Based on Mercedes-Benz Econic low-entry cabs, the vehicles feature a split rear compartment to ensure paper/card and other recycling are kept separated. They also have separate sections for food waste and textiles.

Safety features are prominent: each truck has 360-degree recording digital cameras, including a Cycle Safety Shield detection camera on the nearside to help the driver spot pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists.

Additionally, each vehicle has numerous LED flashing lights to warn motorists, and in-cab systems to allow the crew to report any incidents back to Amey and the council.

Paul Southall, director for Amey on the Isle of Wight, says: “These vehicles are very high quality and will make a big improvement to the way recycling is collected on the Isle of Wight.”
