Out With The Old, In With The New

Equinox Recycling is pleased to announce that it has acquired a dustcart from leading refuse vehicle re-manufacturing company Refuse Vehicle Solutions Ltd.


RVS specializes in revitalising used refuse vehicles, stripping them down and replacing or repairing defective parts to provide high quality ‘as new’ vehicles. Their engineering capabilities have allowed them to adapt, modernise and remanufacture this particular vehicle to our exact needs, budget and specification.

Though this investment is a welcome addition to the fleet, it does mean we have had to say farewell to our old faithful Scania, the only dustcart that has been with us since our humble beginning in 2012.

However, as a growing company Equinox Recycling needs to move forward with the times and the new Leyland Daf CF75 will enable us to do this, while continuing to provide an efficient, reliable and cost-effective service to our customers.

Not only does the new truck have enhanced safety features, including state-of-the-art 360 cameras and an on-board weighing system, but it’s extremely fuel efficient, making it much more environmentally-friendly too.

As a “green” company, we have the environment at the heart of everything we do and this latest addition will go a long way to ensuring that all of our services continue to be carried out in a safe and responsible manner.

The 26t Leyland Daf CF75 is fresh out of the paint shop, having been transformed into Equinox Recycling’s iconic purple and will be hitting the roads later this month, servicing customers across Kent. It will enable us to increase the number of wheeled bin and REL container collections we are able to process on a single day.


Andy Gibbons, Managing Director at Equinox Recycling said: “The company began in March 2012 with just two vehicles and the fleet has grown steadily in line with customer demand. Whilst we are sad to say goodbye to the first and oldest member of our fleet, the latest addition is a welcome investment. It is much more fuel efficient and will ensure our operations continue to be carried out in a green and environmentally-friendly way”.

“Part of our business plan for this year was to enhance the safety and efficiency of our fleet and the new dustcart will go a long way in helping us to achieve that.”

“Having purchased a hook-lift and dustcart from RVS previously, they were the obvious choice when it came to expanding the fleet this time around too. We are committed to using re-manufactured vehicles in line with our ‘reduce, reuse, recycle’ ethos and were impressed by the level and speed of service that RVS had given us before.”

“Their business model enables us to increase operational capacity without the huge capital cost of purchasing new vehicles and we look forward to working with them again in the future.”
