Grundon Trade Waste Fleet Goes Dynamic with Bin Weighing

July 20, 2014

This month the UK’s largest privately owned waste management company, Grundon, will have installed the ENVIROWEIGH bin weighing system from Vehicle Weighing Solutions Ltd (VWS) to over 50 of its trade waste collection vehicles and the number is set to keep rising.

Stephen Townsend, Group Fleet Manager, Grundon explains:
“Many customers now stipulate bin-weighing equipment on tender specifications so this is a direct response to market demand. At the moment we use the technology to identify heavy containers, but ultimately we are moving towards pay by weight because that’s what our customers are starting to ask for.”

Simply Waste operates in the Greater London area and offers a host of waste management services including such as wheeled bin collections, skips, recycling, junk collection, confidential waste and hazardous waste. This is the company’s second order from VWS following the installation of underbody weighing systems and one bin-weighing system to 6 refuse vehicles in 2012.
