New low emission refuse trucks for Hackney

Eight new vehicles have been introduced to Hackney’s waste services to help bring down carbon emissions in Hackney.

The two 12-tonne compact refuse collection trucks, five road sweepers and a street washer were the first of 20 new vehicles to be delivered as part of Hackney's ongoing commitment to reduce carbon emissions and improve cleanliness across the borough.

The next step is to operate more vehicles on biodiesel fuels from sustainable sources. The Council is also looking into the possibility of introducing electrically-powered rubbish collection vehicles.
