City of London Corporation to run fully electric refuse truck fleet

by Mar 8, 2021

The City of London Corporation claims that it will become the first UK local authority to run a fully electric fleet of refuse trucks. Five new electric refuse trucks arrived at the City of London Corporation this week. These zero-emission electric recycling and waste collection fleet will collect residents’ waste and recycling in the Square Mile. According to the managing director of municipal for Veolia UK, there is a potential to recharge these electric refuse vehicles using electricity generated from the waste they carry via energy recovery facilities.
