All Set for ULEZ

Posted on: 22 May 2019

McGrath’s waste collection fleet ready for ULEZ, London’s Ultra Low Emission Zone

More recently we have updated our fleet with the following ULEZ compliant vehicles, in line with our scheduled vehicle replacement programme:

  • 2 x Volvo FM 8×4 Hook Loaders fitted with 410bhp
  • 2 x Volvo FMX 6×4 Tractor Units fitted with 500bhp coupled with Titan 130 cubic yard walking floor trailers

All vehicles are fitted with Euro 6 engines, the cleanest engines ever developed.

Vehicles must now meet the ULEZ emissions standards or face a daily charge of £100 per vehicle. The charge runs from midnight to midnight and is in addition to any Congestion Charge or Low Emission Zone (LEZ) charges that apply.

These new additions to our fleet are ULEZ compliant enabling seamless transportation of waste from any major project within or near to Central London. This waste is transported for processing at our MRF in Barking which has the latest high technology systems in place plus wharf waste facilities, providing another sustainable method of transporting waste from Central London.
