Dorset Waste

The straightforward solution to
consistent, leak-free food
waste collection

“We need reliable leak-free vehicles to provide
a weekly service, and Hillend Engineering’s
food waste vehicles really last”
Tim Woolford
Service Manager for Fleet Services
at Dorset Council

Dorset Council run a fleet of 160 vehicles, with refuse and recycling
collection mainly focussing on domestic properties. Food waste was
previously collected in tri-stream vehicles with a food waste pod at
the front, but to improve efficiencies and increase recycling rates
Dorset Council decided to switch to using a separate food waste collection
vehicle and went out to tender on a 5-year contract.

Their approach was to evaluate options looking at quality, capability, capacity, value
for money and reliability, and after thorough consideration Hillend Engineering were
awarded the contract to supply 7.5T and 15T vehicles to the Council. Designed
specifically for collecting food waste, the MICRO range’s fully sealed body
guarantees leak-free collections. Tim Woolford, Service Manager for Fleet Services
at Dorset Council says, “Ultimately the vehicles need to perform, and their
food waste vehicles are a straightforward product – there is very little to go
wrong with them.”
