New trucks deliver environmental message for Campbelltown

01/04/2014

A new fleet of 18 environmentally friendly waste and recycling trucks that run on a soy biodiesel will collect Campbelltown’s waste from today.

The $6.75 million investment follows the introduction of 20 SITA soy biodiesel trucks in 2011.

SITA Campbelltown’s Site Manager Allan Chisholm said he is delighted to have the new clean and green trucks on the road.

“The new trucks will reduce our fleet’s carbon emissions by more than 293 tonnes of CO2 each year which is equivalent to taking 64 cars off the road,” Mr Chisholm said.

Mr Chisholm said the $6.75 million investment follows the initial introduction of 20 soy biodiesel trucks in 2011.

“This investment now takes our fleet of soy biodiesel trucks in Campbelltown to 25,” he said. 

SITA and Campbelltown City Council have been working together for over 30 years to keep Campbelltown clean.

Mr Chisholm said the new trucks will also be driving for better environmental outcomes in more ways than one.

“Our fleet will also serve as an educational tool with prominent messages on the side of every truck to remind residents that general waste is for the red bin, recyclables are for the yellow bin and garden waste is for the green bin.”

“We’re hoping that we also might inspire the broader Campbelltown community to think more about how they can reduce and recycle their waste," Mr Chisholm added.

SITA uses soy diesel B20 which is a blend containing 20% soy based biodiesel. Soy biodiesel is a
clean burning alternative fuel produced from renewable resources. The fuel is produced from soy oil which is otherwise a waste by-product from farming soy beans for soy bean meal manufacture.

SITA employs 26 team members to provide Campbelltown City Council’s waste collection services to more than 150,000 residents across 33 suburbs every day.
