Algar acquired 6 new vehicles for selective collection of plastic/metal and paper/cardboard packaging waste, in an investment of one million euros.
The vehicles have a back entry for collection, which allows for easy access and deposition of materials that are collected in the areas surrounding the ecopoints.
These equipments have a set of characteristics that substantially upgraded the daily working conditions of drivers, in terms of comfort and safety. For:
Improved driver's safety
More road traffic safety
These vehicles also allow for more battery savings and low environmental impact. The combination of a powerful and particularly quiet engine, with the comfortable 6-speed automatic Allison gearbox (FuelSense® technology), provides the right performance in any driving and working situation, even at low speed, and creates the best conditions for driving quietly and confidently.
The Selective Collection activity thus has a fleet of 31 vehicles that ensure the collection of approximately 3,800 ecopoints distributed across the 16 municipalities in the region.
