FCC Environment, one of the UK's leading waste and resource management companies, has taken delivery of thirteen new 44 tonne Walking Floor® trailers supplied by BMI, and twelve new three axle DAF tractor units supplied by F&G Commercials adding to their fleet of vehicles. This investment follows the successful procurment and award of a five year haulage contract. The new vehicles will be dedicated to supporting the re3 partnership.
re3 is the partnership between Bracknell Forest, Reading and Wokingham Borough Councils and FCC Environment set up to increase the amount of waste that is reused, recycled and composted across the three Councils and to minimise the amount of waste sent to landfill.
The Councils and FCC Environment are working together to provide local residents and businesses with first-class facilities for recycling and disposing of waste until 2031.
As part of the contract, recyclable materials are collected at the re3 Longshot Lane facility and delivered for processing at the re3 Smallmead Materials Recycling Facility (MRF). Residual wastes are transported from the re3 MRF, its two transfer stations and HWRC facilities to Lakeside EfW and FCC Environment’s Sutton Courtenay complex for further treatment.
“These new additions to the FCC Environment fleet will facilitate the efficient delivery of our re3 contract” said Head of Fleet and Plant David Simpson. “BMI and DAF were chosen to deliver the vehicles after a competitive tender process. We are delighted to have taken delivery of all of the vehicles on time and we are looking forward to putting them to work on the new contract.”Back
