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.
