UK’s waste managing firm introduces plastic trucks to clear waste and tones of carbon too
Plastic vehicles will soon replace heavy metal based trucks to clear waste in UK. In a bid to reduce their own carbon footprint a Kent based waste firm, Verdant, plans to introduce eight plastic trucks which in turn will drive to save up to 11 tonnes of carbon per year. Manufactured by Linktip, these trucks will help to save about $3,900 worth fuel per vehicle per year. At the same time these ‘polybuilt’ vehicles can ship up to twice the load compared to current traditional waste-carrying trucks. Weighing just 3.5 tonnes, these vehicles are based on either Mitsubishi Canter or Mercedes Sprinter chassis and sport a tipping rear body made of polypropylene plastic. Smart way to keep our environment as well surroundings clean!
