Waste recycling specialist Recycling Lives has installed Vision Techniques’ safety equipment on its new electric skip transporter trucks.
The two 19-tonne E-Tech DZE trucks were designed and developed in collaboration with Renault Trucks and mark the start of Recycling Lives’ journey in decarbonising the company’s entire fleet.
The Renault Trucks E-Tech DZE have been fitted with Vision Techniques‘ industry-leading Turnaware, Turnalarm, video recording systems and telematics. The all-electric vehicles will be used in daily operations, servicing commercial and household clients.
Eddie Hollingsworth, Head of Transport Operations at Recycling Lives, said: ‘Our industry is fast-paced and is at the forefront of ensuring collectively we minimise our impact on the environment. Moving to a decarbonised fleet is one way we can do that, but we also need to ensure that safety is paramount.’
