Electric garbage collection lorries begin operation in Paris

May 11th, 2011 by Thomson Reuters

SITA begin use of electric garbage collection lorries in Paris.  The first neighbourhood to receive them is the Paris suburb of Courbevoie.  The lorries have lithium-ion batteries that provides power for eight hours before needing to be recharged.

The 26-ton electric trucks are quiet and produce no exhaust pollution.  They offer similar power and performance to fossil-fueled powered lorries.
