Fleet investment secures weekly refuse collections

Adur and Worthing Councils have announced the £4.2 million purchase of 24 new waste trucks to maintain the weekly collection of residential refuse.

The trucks, ordered by sole UK manufacturer Dennis Eagle, will be on the road by the beginning of the Summer and will replace the current fleet that is 10 years old.

The announcement comes as a number of local authorities are opting for bi weekly, three weekly and in some cases monthly residential refuse collections in a bid to save money.

Councillor Clive Roberts, executive member for Environment at Worthing Borough Council, said: “This new fleet will deliver a green, more efficient and cost effective residential collection service across both districts, but more importantly it will facilitate the councils' promise of weekly residential collection services for our residents.”
