The investment will help the family-run business manage increasing demand from skip hire and commercial waste customers across the region.
Hiab’s remote-controlled operation on the skiploaders and automatic sheet coverings is said to give the drivers more time to increase the number of daily drops and collections by up to 60%.
The four Futura12 skiploaders and additional Ultima24 hookloader joins an existing fleet of 18 trucks and four trailers.
Scott Cartwright-Smith, operations manager for Cartwrights Waste Disposal said: “We already have several Hiabs within our fleet which have helped us to streamline our operation to carry out more collections of recycled wastes including paper and card, plastics, metals, green wastes and aggregates.
“Before using Hiab equipment, our drivers completed up to 12 collections in one day. We’re now recording up to 20 collections thanks to the fast performance of the Hiab skiploaders and hookloaders.”
Cartwrights has delivered waste management services throughout Shropshire for over 35 years from its Telford-based recycling facility and head office.
