A fleet of environmentally friendly waste trucks is being rolled out at Knowl Hill.
Grundon, which operates a quarry and depot in Star Lane, has become the first major waste management group in the UK to make its entire fleet carbon neutral.
The 28 trucks at Knowl Hill will be part of the three-year scheme, reducing the corporation’s carbon footprint as well as its clients’.
Toni Robinson, Grundon’s compliance manager, said: “This is about so much more than just a sticker on the side of a truck, it’s a tangible demonstration of our commitment to continue to cut carbon emissions.”
Grundon expects to reduce 30,000 tonnes of carbon emissions through the scheme.
