Efficiently managing your waste collection
Feb. 26 2021
To easily manage your rubbish collection activity, Renault Trucks accompanies you to choose municipal trucks and services well-adapted to your daily tasks.
Waste collection trucks: the right truck for the job
Waste management can have varying factors depending on its location. Whether the collection is set to occur in the city centre, in suburban areas or waste management on industrial sites, you will need the right truck for the job - specially designed for the task.
To help you make the best choice, Renault Trucks relies on its Renault Trucks Master and Renault Trucks Master Z.E. chassis cab, the Renault Trucks D and D-WIDE, with either a diesel or electric engine.
For urban and suburban collections, our Renault Trucks D and D WIDE models combine a high payload with excellent manoeuvrability, fantastic visibility and large loading capacities. The countless configurations suggested are particularly well-suited to waste management - namely the 6x2*4 version of our D WIDE model, which has a second steering axle to make manoeuvres easier in towns.
If your activity is more focused on industrial waste management, which requires larger payloads and more power, our Renault Trucks C model is ideal for installing removable skips, refuse skips coupled with a crane, or conveyor belt. The Renault Trucks C line offers up to 22.8 tonnes of payload and engines ranging up to 520 hp. for activities requiring heavier loads.
Quickly install the bodywork of your choice
Waste collection can come in many different forms and requires extremely specific bodywork. In helping you choose the best for your specific operational requirements, Renault Trucks works closely with bodybuilders. Our vehicles can be specified to accept a wide range of bodywork, thanks to their range of options, including specific overhangs with pre drilling, and options for body mounting plates to suit the body type. Thanks to pre-equipment and to the Bodybuilder Portal, a website dedicated to body-builders detailing the specific technical sheets for each vehicle, the operators’ work is made easier and delivery lead time is reduced.
Rubbish trucks are going green
Renault Trucks offers natural gas or 100% electric alternatives. Many local councils have already chosen natural gas-driven trucks for their waste collection. With its 239 kW (320 hp) engine and an operating range close to 500 miles, the Renault Trucks D WIDE CNG model can be used both in urban and suburban areas, and is designed to be fitted with the same bodywork as other vehicles from the D range.
Renault Trucks is also committed to zero emission mobility with its Renault Trucks D andv D-WIDE Z.E. models, which are 100% electric.
Waste collection is an activity to which electric vehicles are particularly well-suited. The use of refuse skips requires high fuel consumption, and emits large quantities of dust and particles - whereas electrical vehicles do not emit any.
Fully electric vehicles can also access certain restricted and low emission zones.
Optimize your fleet management
Choosing your waste collection route is particularly important in terms of efficiency, and can be regularly modified. Our smart fleet management solution - Optifleet - helps you plan your routes in the most efficient way possible, and view your trucks’ real-time location. If your activity is subcontracted, Optifleet enables your partner to recover and integrate data into their own management system.
Furthermore, the system allows for precise consumption and equipment usage data to be sent in: standby use of the skip, slow driving, how many times the brake pedal was applied, etc. You can also configure a threshold level to alert you if the vehicle over-consumes, and assess your drivers based on technical and objective data. For instance, you can implement a training course efficient driving. Optifuel Training courses are taught by Renault Trucks experts to your staff, in real life conditions.
