Waste haulage, plant hire and jetting specialist Monks Contractors is to supply fleet hire and maintenance services to Lancashire County Council for the next five years.

The company will provide Lancashire Renewables – which operates two central waste treatment facilities in Thornton and Farington – with 30 new Volvo tractor units and BMI waste trailers with moving-floors and ejectors, which will be used to transport municipal and recyclable waste on behalf of the council.

Monks addressed a series of low carbon, social and sustainability objectives as part of the tender, which included the use of newer, more efficient trucks.

“Monks and their supply chains, Volvo and BMI, have provided exemplary support since the contract award and specifically in regards of meeting our target deadline for the service commencement of the new fleet; and especially during the challenges that we have all faced during the global pandemic,” said Lancashire Renewables general manager Paul Brindle.

 “We have confidence that the services provided will support in the delivery of our objectives and the management and haulage of waste, for the people of Lancashire over the next five years.”
