Purpose-built fully-electric bin lorries ‘to clean up Nottingham’s streets’

The two eRCVs are expected to generate more than £300,000 of savings during their lifetime

New electric refuse collection vehicles (eRCVs) will soon take to the streets in Nottingham.

The city's council has announced it will be amongst 'the first in the world' to receive purpose-built fully-electric refuse collection vehicles and suggests this addition to its fleet will help Nottingham meet its 2028 carbon-neutral goal.

The local authority, which expects to keep the eRCVs for ten years, compared to the current diesel RCV retention of seven years, suggests the two eRCVs could generate more than £300,000 of savings during their lifetime.
