Waste Management and Recycling

Bringing industry experience to waste management sector fleets

  • If your organisation is working in the private sector, contracted by local authorities, or you are running municipal operations from within the public sector, our specialist team understands what’s needed to assist you in delivering your services.

  • Whether you’re collecting refuse and recycling from homes, businesses or transfer stations, or delivering to treatment facilities or dismantling centres, we’ll make sure your fleet is available, safe, maintained and compliant at all times.

Our approach

Accountability and funding

As organisations that deliver publically-funded services or businesses conducting commercial and industrial services, you need to ensure full accountability. Whether you’re a local authority or a private company contracted to provide a service, our expert guidance can help you maximise budgets, minimise capital spend and manage your costs efficiently. Our flexible funding packages cover all types of vehicles and assets in the waste management and recycling sector.

Vehicle utilisation

Downtime can incur significant costs for your business as a result of financial penalties for non-delivery of service or short-term hire fees associated with bringing in specialist vehicles or equipment. We’ll work closely with you to optimise vehicle maintenance and downtime management. This minimises your costs and inconvenience to your customers.

Specialist vehicles

Collecting, transporting, re-handling, disposing and recycling waste requires a diverse range of vehicles. Whether you require street cleaning equipment, specially equipped vans, recycling and refuse collection vehicles, hook loaders, pavement and street sweepers, fork lift trucks, wheeled and tracked hydraulic excavators or wheel loaders, we’ve got it covered. We can fund, source and manage any type of vehicle you need. Our specialist team can even design and build manage bespoke vehicles for your fleet.

Full fleet management

Your fleet may need tailor made servicing schedules to run smoothly. Our specialist teams comprise sector-specific technical consultants and expert account managers. Working together, they understand all of the challenges and requirements you face from the ground up, and offer a full range of fleet management services to match your needs.

Continuous Improvement Manager (Fleet)


We at British Gas are so proud to have been the first to be involved in such an innovative project, and were extremely impressed with the performance of the Nissan e-NV200 during our winter trial. Throughout the pilot, Nissan and Hitachi Capital gave us the freedom to tweak the vehicles according to our exact specifications. As a consequence of the successful partnership, we are now fully committed to making 10% of our fleet electric by 2017.
