3rd February 2012
Contract hire and fleet management company, Specialist Fleet Services Ltd (SFS), is celebrating being awarded a fourth contract in succession by Aylesbury Vale District Council.
SFS has been supplying the authority with vehicles for over 10 years and this latest fleet will facilitate the rollout of a new twin-stream, co-mingled collection service in the district.
Andrew Wilkins, Service Manager, Aylesbury Vale District Council said: “Flexibility and value for money are our top priorities and SFS always delivers on both accounts. The new vehicles are crucial to the success of our new service and have been specified for maximum load and efficiency, whilst being able to reach difficult to access areas.”
Andrew continued: “Our initial target is 60% recycling in the district and after some door to door consultation with residents we have constructed a new service that includes weekly food waste collections, with alternate residual waste and recyclable waste collections.”
The 6-year lease hire agreement commences in August 2012 when the 16 new RCV’s, all from Dennis Eagle with Terberg Bin Lifts and Food Pods, will be delivered to Aylesbury.
A member of the Rothschild Banking Group, SFS runs its own network of workshops and provides vehicle hire and fleet management services to the public and private sector, including maintenance, workshop management, service scheduling, compliance and testing, accident management, breakdown support, staff training and technical advice.
Bob Sweetland, Managing Director, SFS, said: “We value our close working relationship with Aylesbury Vale, which helps us to deliver a tailor-made solution, at a competitive price. We are committed to providing a reliable and quality service that is unrivalled in the industry.”
