Join the eRCV revolution today
This is the world’s first all-electric Refuse Collection Vehicle from an OEM. It produces zero emissions so it doesn’t add to climate change or pollute the air we breathe. It’s a full-sized eRCV and built to last. Yet it is more efficient and cheaper to run. And it comes with the kind of support you’d only expect from Dennis Eagle.
We’ve been talking to our customers about this landmark vehicle. As electric trucks are new to many of them, they have lots of questions. We’ve collected those most frequently asked and answered them here. And if you have a question, just ask: we’ll be delighted to answer.
This website aims to introduce you to the eCollect vehicle, why it's needed and the advantages it brings to the environment. You can download our resources which contain both a vehicle overview and detailed specifications. We'll also be running a series of webinars over the coming months for those who are interested in exploring the vehicle further.
Five more eCollects have been ordered by Cardiff Council after its first went into service in April.
The first eCollect has gone into service with Sunderland City Council, making a “highly visible demonstration” of the council's commitment to carbon reduction.
The first eCollect eRCV has gone into service collecting residual waste from households across the whole of Powys – one of the largest and most sparsely populated counties in the UK.
