WM Waste’s New Electric Trucks Leading the Way in Environmental Waste Collection

May 29, 2019

WM Waste Management is now operating the first fully electric, environmentally friendly waste disposal truck of its kind.

The electric trucks are unprecedented, with no equivalent low-emissions waste disposal vehicle currently operating within Australia. It is estimated that each load of waste taken by the electric trucks directly saves approximately 180kg of carbon dioxide being emitted into the atmosphere in comparison with an equivalent diesel truck. The trucks are entirely electric-powered, with no fossil fuels used during operation, and contain cutting-edge battery technology allowing them to operate for up to 250km’s on a single charge.

The electric trucks also have a number of wider environmental benefits. The exhaust pollution created by regular vehicles is eliminated, allowing for cleaner air in suburban homes and streets. Another benefit of the electric engine in the WM electric truck is that it is almost silent compared to an equivalent diesel truck. This has the further effect of reducing noise pollution and allows the residents of the City of Casey to sleep for longer in the mornings when the collection trucks arrive.

WM Waste intends to expand its fleet of electric trucks in the future, intending to spread the environmental benefits of the electric waste collection throughout more communities within Victoria.
