Our Fleet

Where Our Waste Goes

Our Responsible & Reliable Fleet

Investing in our fleet of vehicles for the benefit our customers as well as the environment.

Click the individual icons below to see how Dunmow Waste vehicles are making a difference.

Updating our fleet has a huge impact on the efficiency of how they work. Our new vehicles offer 90% reductions in emissions overall versus the 1990 model, meaning wherever we go, it’s a cleaner drive for the environment looking ahead.

Manufacturers are always improving their vehicle design, which affords our new fleet multiple advantages. Less vibration and noise through improved insulation is a huge plus for our customers - especially in residential areas!

The older a vehicle gets, the more likely it is to encounter problems. Our new fleet means you can rely on us to be there on time and with the ability to carry out the tasks we promise to complete. One less worry for you and our team.

Once again, the improved design of these vehicles, in particular their engines and internal systems, means we have reduced our fuel consumption by 5% for our fleet.

It’s important that businesses in the UK lead the way in greenhouse gas reduction, showing that we can still operate to the same high standards without the detrimental impact on the environment - and we’re doing just that.

Where in the world does our waste go?

The big question customers have about our services is: where does the waste go? It’s a valid question and we feel it’s all the more important to educate and share such information in these environmentally conscious times.
