WIN Waste Innovations to power Mack electric refuse trucks using waste they collect

Waste will be converted into renewable energy to charge the LR Electric vehicles, as well as provide renewable energy to homes and businesses.

Recycling and waste company WIN Waste Innovations recently received two Mack LR Electric Class 8 refuse vehicles, with plans to power these trucks exclusively by the waste collected by the vehicles themselves.

The two Mack LR Electric vehicles will each collect 150 cubic yards of waste per day on service routes in Boston, Mass. The waste will be converted into renewable energy to charge the LR Electric vehicles, as well as provide converted renewable energy to homes and businesses in the region. The fleet estimates that this will eliminate the need for about 2,000 gallons of diesel fuel per year and reduce greenhouse gases (GHG).

WIN Waste operates 50 collection, transfer and disposal assets, including waste-to-energy facilities, transfer solutions, ash monofils, landfills, as well as fleets of rail cars and collection vehicles. WIN Waste says it recycles more than 354,000 tons of plastic, paper and metals from the waste stream and converts more than 6.4 million tons of post-recycled waste into renewable energy.

“Electric trucks are a natural progression of WIN Waste’s emphasis on sustainability and circularity,” said Dan Mayo, chief executive officer of WIN Waste Innovations. “By recharging our Mack LR Electric trucks using the energy generated from the very waste they collect, we are actively bolstering our own sustainability goals, as well as those of our customers.”
