At the start of the year J&B Recycling invested a total of £1million on our fleet of vehicles and mobile plant to replace older units and add new additions to our growing waste management services for both businesses and households.
We took a delivery of two 32-tonne hook loaders in 2019, and our firm has renewed 13 of the varied fleet of vehicles over the past 18 months, allowing much more flexibility and increased services.
Matthew Tyrie, Operations Director at J&B Recycling, said: “New additions to our fleet of vehicles brings the total to 18 vehicles and three trailers, with plans to add an additional unit and walking floor this year.
“The fleet now holds seven bin wagons, five hookloaders, three artic units with walking floor trailers, two skiploaders, and one curtainsider. Having added a walking floor trailer in October last year to service the North Tyneside Council contract.”
Following last year’s massive growth, we chose to rebrand ourselves at the start of 2020 meaning that the vehicles have had a facelift; adding the redesigned logo in tune with our continuous improvement of operating within a state-of-the-art environment.
Upgrading our vehicles means that we can continue to provide the level of service required for our customers and partners in terms of processing and have more control over delivering materials.
Vikki Jackson-Smith, Managing Director at J&B Recycling, said: “Investing in vehicle upgrades ensures we can offer a superior recycling solution to contracts, such as the ones with large local authorities.
“Although we have seen an impact from COVID-19 that has reduced the volume of services, our modern fleet is ready to provide the reliable and flexible service that our customers will need as their businesses resume operating.”
