Enfield Council has taken delivery of its first fully electric refuse truck, a 26-tonne Renault E-Tech.
The ultra-quiet D Wide Low Entry Cab equipped with a CP Davidson Titan refuse body is the first of four to be delivered and will service the London borough’s residents with the remaining three expected to be on the road by the summer.
The council said it has also invested in five 3.5-tonne Renault E-Tech Master 33kWh Cage Tippers for its parks operations.

Rick Jewell, Enfield Council’s cabinet member for environment, said: “Where possible, electric vehicles will be our first choice when it comes to fleet replacements.
“This will result in a fleet of clean and efficient vehicles. Moving to electric vehicles will ensure our carbon footprint is reduced and kept to a minimum.”
