Suffolk recycling specialist Indigo Waste Services has added the first rear-steer Renault Trucks Range C 8x2 into its fleet due to a pressing need for more volume.

The high specification 32-tonne C430, supplied by Thompson Commercials (Boston) on a seven-year full repair and maintenance contract, is fitted with a 20-tonne Palfinger PK17001 crane. It includes an extra bottle bank attachment and Webb steel fixed side tipping body with high partition, all supplied by Webb Truck Equipment, Acton, Suffolk.

The new C430 is expected to clock up to 100,000 km per year operating across East Anglia on Indigo’s new contract with Palm Paper, collecting cans, plastics, glass and mixed paper from a well-known supermarket’s recycling bins.

Indigo Waste’s MD Gary Lee said: “I needed a bigger truck that could give us more capacity. We’ve been running Ts and Ds for a while and we’ve always been delighted with the trucks and the service received from Thompsons.

“Paper is dense with a greater volume to weight ratio, so I opted for the Renault Trucks eight-wheeler this time. “The C430’s rear steer also gives us a better turning circle and more manoeuvrability when getting in and out of the tight recycling areas.”
