“Waste Management’s investment in unique and innovative fleet technologies like the Rotopress is helping us operate our core business activities more efficiently as well as reduce the environmental footprint of our fleet,” said Eric Woods, vice president, fleet and logistics at Waste Management. “The Rotopress will help contribute toward our corporate sustainability goal to increase fuel efficiency by 15 percent and decrease emissions by 15 percent by 2020.”
The Rotopress is significantly lighter than most compaction-plate trucks and allows the vehicle to carry up to 14 tons. In addition, its semi-truck trailer has a 40% smaller turning radius making it more maneuverable, which is very desirable in residential areas.
