Fuso Canters are streets ahead in Sefton24 January 2012

Residents in Sefton, Merseyside, are enjoying the benefits of cleaner and greener streets, following the introduction of a new clutch of nine Fuso Canter trucks.

The 7.5-tonners are operated by PD Logistics on behalf of Palm Recycling, which purchased the vehicles after securing a five-year contract from Sefton Borough Council.

They provide a weekly kerbside collection service of recyclable materials to 124,000 households.

The trucks are all Canter 7C18 models and powered by state-of-the-art 180hp engines which meet not only Euro 5 exhaust emissions limits but also the more stringent EEV (enhanced environmentally-friendly vehicle) standard.

"The addition of these Canters expands our UK fleet enormously," explains Ben Saunders, Palm Recycling's UK operations manager.

"They are bespoke, state-of-the-art vehicles that present a modern, clean and efficient appearance and will assist in continuing to deliver a high-quality, cost-effective recycling service to Sefton Borough Council and the residents of the area."

The new Canters were supplied by Liverpool dealer Mercedes-Benz dealer Road Range Commercials, and are fitted with bodies of the operator's own design, by Stoke-on-Trent specialist Stag.
