The types of vehicles used by the service providers collecting material are the most diverse.
The most common are compactors that can reduce the initial volume of waste to 1/3. There are also tractors, open bucket pickup and pickup with bodies or trunks, multi-pickup trucks used in the selective collection of recyclables, in which the collected materials are allocated separately inside the truck’s body.
How Can Real Collection Companies Optimize Their Service?
To reduce the time spent on transportation and consequently the costs of moving the pickup truck from the final point of the route to the ultimate disposal site of the waste, some material collection service providers have transfer or transshipment stations.
At these stations, the pickup trucks unload their cargo in vehicles with larger capacity bodies that are later sent to the final destination.
