Westminster Waste confirms bin weighing standard on fleet

Written by: Vehicle Weighing Solutions | Published:

London-based Westminster Waste has ordered its third refuse collection vehicle (RCV) equipped with bin-weighing equipment to enhance its pay by weight service. According to the company, the bin weighing technology will also be part of the standard specification for all new vehicles on its fleet.

Westminster Waste took delivery of its first RCV last year, a Euro 6 DAF CF 440 FAX 8x2 chassis fitted with the ENVIROWEIGH bin-weighing system from Vehicle Weighing Solutions (VWS). ENVIROWEIGH is also weights & measures approved so it can be used for pay by weight services. A second ‘bin-weighing ready’ vehicle was purchased soon after as part of the company’s ongoing vehicle replacement programme to upgrade the fleet with the latest Euro 6 compliant trucks.

Dave Tucker, director, Westminster Waste, said: “The VWS bin-weighing system allows us to monitor the weight data for every bin, we can easily upload the information on to our back office system allowing us to quickly present accurate weight information to our customers.”

ENVIROWEIGH integrates with vehicle CCTV and telemetry systems to enable remote monitoring and for the collection of data. It provides a real-time solution to such issues as uncollected bin queries and re-routing the truck for an urgent collection.

ENVIROWEIGH can also be used in conjunction with PurGo software for a fully integrated bin-weighing solution. PurGo has been designed specifically for waste management operators to streamline processes from sales through to operations including route scheduling, admin, billing and reporting, and uses technology such as in-cab PDAs.
