Spelthorne Borough Council in Surrey has retained Specialist Fleet Services Ltd (SFS) as its fleet provider after announcing the award of a second contract commencing in June 2023.

17 vehicles comprising 12 x Refuse Vehicle Vehicles and 5x sweepers are due to be delivered as part of the 7-year contract, which includes maintenance, to replace the council’s current waste, recycling, and street cleansing fleet.

Cllr Richard Barratt, Chair of Spelthorne Council’s Neighbourhood Services Committee, said: “We are delighted to have signed a new seven-year contract with Specialist Fleet Services for 17 new vehicles and maintenance. We have a strong working relationship with SFS and look forward to continuing to work together to provide reliable and cost-effective refuse services for the residents of Spelthorne.”
