NTMWith the arrival of Spring, the recent floods waning and Britain’s coast lines slowly but surely returning to normality, NTM takes a look at NTM vehicles operating in and around the coastal areas of the UK.

Wyre Borough Council already has a 12 tonne Link-Tip Plastic Polybody in its fleet and they have just taken delivery of another 3.5 tonne Plastic LinkTip vehicle complete with a Bin Lift – this vehicle will also be emptying bins on Fleetwood promenade. Wyre BC’s transport officer Gary Scott said, “The NTM-LinkTip vehicles are very versatile and one vehicle is able to do many different jobs – we have recently been using the roll on roll off body for delivering sandbags during the recent floods.  The new 3.5 tonne vehicle with bin lift is perfect!  I would say the bin lift on this vehicle is the best on the market – straight forward and the operators give it the thumbs up!”

Blackpool Borough Council is a brand new customer for NTM the Council has just taken delivery of a new 15tonne K Standard body (single compartment) vehicle mounted on Daf Chassis.  The new truck is collecting Seafront litter and emptying Seafront wheelie bins!

Havant Borough Council has just taken delivery of a LinkTip Plastic Body which is collecting BBQ and Seafront waste and Adur & Worthing Council has also just taken of a LinkTip Plastic Body Transit Van.

Denbighshire County Council is an existing NTM LinkTip customer and has a combined total of 15 vehicles on its fleet comprising of both NTM Steel Bodies and LinkTip Plastic Polybody vehicles.  Denbighshire has recently placed another order for an NTM 7.5tonne K Midi mounted on Isuzu Chassis.

Assistant fleet manager Chris Brown said, “The collection of food waste is currently a real ‘hot topic’ and is moving forward rapidly in the UK. Food waste forms around 28% of the average Denbighshire householder’s bin waste by weight and, up until recently, this has been buried in landfill sites – we now collect the food waste on a weekly basis and it all then goes to a processing plant.”

Brown continued, “The 7.5 tonne Polybody vehicles began operating in 2011 and we opted for these trucks for several reasons, the first being that the small vehicles can navigate easily in the more rural areas.  The vehicles are also reliable and easy to maintain.”

Following Defra’s recent push to encourage separation at source Bournemouth Borough Council has purchased four NTM K Maxi single body units with an FK Pod non compacting bin lift (FK) for recycling.

The FK is a top discharge unit so is a fully welded structure to avoid the possibility of leaks and the bin lift cycle is a very nifty 19 seconds.  NTM has also designed the FK bin lift with a stainless steel pannier that does not need to be removed to empty bins, the pannier can easily be removed for cleaning.  Another distinct advantage of the FK is the unique low discharge design, which is ideal for areas where overhead power cables are low.

NTM-GB offers a complete range of products from 3.5 tonne tippers, non-compaction refuse vehicles, plastic bodies, right up to the largest 32t vehicles in its range NTM is the only company in the UK that can offer such a vast portfolio of products.
