Dennis Eagle does the job for recycling kitchen waste; MANUFACTURING FROM ATTACK.

Warwickshire refuse collection vehicle manufacturer Dennis Eagle has secured a large contract to supply specially-prepared recycling trucks to a local authority in South Wales.

The company said it was supplying a number of its twin compartment Duo kitchen waste recycling vehicles to Rhondda Cynon Taff.

The council has evaluated the vehicle through an extensive trial and has now ordered eight of the units to help with its recycling policy.

The vehicles will enter service next month.

Showcased at the recent Refuse and Waste Management exhibition at the NEC, the Duos are set to join two new high capacity Twin Pack RCVs featuring Dennis Eagle's 70/30-body compartment split.

Paul Uren, operations manager for Rhondda Cynon Taff, said that having tried out the kitchen waste recycling scheme, the Dennis Eagle unit was the considered the best vehicle for the job.

"We believe the new Dennis Eagle Duos will fulfil our requirements and help us take our recycling programme to a new level," he said.

Kitchen waste from 20,000 homes across the area will be collected in biodegradable bags for households to deposit in 47-litre lockable waste bins. The tied bags will be then loaded kerbside into the Duo's 270-litre collection trough, before being top loaded into the purpose-designed four cubic metre recycling pod that is located immediately behind the cab.

Completing the new vehicle fleet are two Twin Pack 70/30s that are set to be used to collect trade waste.
