West Country waste management and recycling specialist, Bristol & Avon Transport & Recycling Limited has made a major investment in 14 new Scania tippers to take the company forward over the coming years.

Supplied by Scania (Great Britain) Limited's Avonmouth depot, the new trucks are now providing a full waste removal and recycled material delivery service to the region's construction industry.

Equipped with lightweight Charlton Quarrymaster bodies, the 32-tonnes gross vehicle weight trucks are all based on 400 horsepower Scania P 400 CB8x4MHZ eight-wheel chassis.

"Our work includes both on- and off-road operations, is extremely arduous and certainly places heavy demands on our trucks,"  comments Bristol & Avon T & R Limited Managing Director, Kevin Berkely.

"But as a long-established Scania operator we know we can depend upon our new fleet to provide a reliable and cost-effective service."

Based in Bristol, The Bristol & Avon Group of companies is a family-owned business serving the local community.  The company has been heavily involved in a variety of regeneration projects in the Bristol area over the past two decades and specialises in providing a complete waste management service offering, tipper & skip hire aggregate, plastics, cardboard, metal & wood recycling, land remediation and supply of quarried & recycled aggregates to the construction industry..  Much of the waste the firm removes from building sites is returned to contractors after reprocessing to provide materials for a wide range of projects including road building, ground work and the creation of amenity areas.
