Serco delivers new bodies to leading medical waste company
Truck body fabricator Serco has delivered eight new truck bodies to Compass Medical Waste Services, to add to the six units built for the company last year.
A leader in the waste services industry, Compass Medical Waste Services sets high standards with regard to vehicle body build and specifications.
Serco took into account the client’s objectives and its need to maintain high environmental standards and stringent legislative safety requirements. The bodies also had to safeguard the health and safety of the company’s employees, customers, suppliers and stakeholders, while incorporating sustainable features where feasible.
Three of the larger vehicles feature a roof-mounted solar panel system, which powers the tail lift and eliminates the need to idle the truck during collections. The system also provides power for a camera and tracking system.
Additional features include: load-restraining rails and straps; a cargo net for containers and storage bins; a trolley fitted to the interior door; a spillage kit box for chemicals and cleaning equipment; and a Hazchem document holder.
The rear doors are fitted with a clawtainer for added security, and the rear sill has been raised to prevent spillage of liquids while in transit.
