Oil and food waste recovery operator Olleco is transferring its entire truck fleet onto Michelin tyres in a bid to reduce its CO2 emissions.

The contract was signed after Michelin demonstrated how a tailored services and solutions contract could help the business reduce its carbon footprint.

Having previously run its vehicles on a rival manufacturer’s tyres, the nationwide circular economy business will now transition its truck fleet to a combined Michelin new and Remix policy. Its cars and light commercials will also run on Michelin tyres.

Anthony Nolan, operations director supply collect, at Olleco, said: “Working with some of the biggest brands in the world, we create closed loops to reduce carbon emissions and minimise waste.

“A simple swap to a values-aligned supplier like Michelin is just one example of how a small change can make a big difference.”

All truck tyres fitted to Olleco’s vehicles will be managed through a multi-life policy with Michelin’s technicians regrooving worn tyres on site once the tread depth reaches 3-4mm, helping to extend each tyre’s life.

Once the regrooved tyres have worn, they will be retreaded at the Michelin Remix plant in Stoke-on-Trent.
