Kleenwaste take delivery of 5 new trucks

This week Kleenwaste have welcomed 5 new trucks to its dedicated fleet. The new 7.5 tonne trucks are added to the existing fleet to serve its large UK customer base through Kleenwaste’s branch network.

With taking delivery of the new trucks, Kleenwaste is making progress with the investment of upgrading and expanding its dedicated fleet.

“Despite Covid-19, we continue to invest in expanding and upgrading our fleet, which allows us to deliver superior customer service to an ever-growing customer base across the UK,” Mark Cawley, Managing Director Safetykleen UK. “In October 2019 we rebranded our waste business to Kleenwaste and taking delivery of the new trucks with new Kleenwaste livery is a major milestone for us and our dedicated team members across the UK.”

Investing in its dedicated fleet of trucks and oil tankers is a key focus area for Kleenwaste. Since 2019 these investments have contributed to being awarded the FORS Silver level and a reduction in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. Mark Cawley believes the fleet investment plan will provide additional capacity for business growth and enhanced customer service, while creating one of the most modern and environmentally friendly fleets in the UK.
