New Amrep rear-load refuse truck requires less maintenance, saves on operating costs

An Amrep refuse truck
Ideal for East Coast weather and terrain, the all-new rear-load design requires less maintenance by design.

Amrep has released a new rear-load refuse truck offering enhanced durability and less maintenance requirements. According to the company, the new arrival is also the only rear-load truck equipped with Hardox AR500 and AR450 steel body.

The rear-load design makes it easy for crews to load by hand, providing the flexibility to sort through content when needed and avoid contamination of recycled material. This versatility is ideal for haulers navigating narrow streets and alleyways like those found in older cities and neighbourhoods.

"The demand for rear-load trucks has been consistent for many years now," said Rob Strange, director of refuse body sales for Amrep across North America. "This type of truck provides great benefit to many haulers, and we're proud to offer the engineering and technology we've implemented in our new product."

Why invest money in an intelligent MRF (4.0)?

Traditionally, waste management companies have operated using a simple "management of waste" approach to operating a MRF. Throughput targets and continuous operation (minimal downtime) were the main driving forces. The industry has changed however, and the focus moving forward is now on optimizing system performance and reliability, in conjunction with increasing recycling rates and a drive for a "greener" and more sustainable tomorrow.

When considering the addition of, or upgrade to, an "intelligent" MRF, for municipalities or private operators, the main factors should always be the client's (operator) current requirements, and evolving market needs, which include throughput, reliability, output quality, and adaptability. Equally important is a full understanding of what is really expected from any proposed system. Having an engaged and focused mindset for the project with the client from the beginning, will impact and drive the entire design process. This then impacts the overall project result, through to the productive, efficient, ongoing operation of the facility itself.
