Robo-lorry coming to Enfield

Enfield Council has agreed to buy a new computer system to more effectively track its refuse and recycling collections and save the borough tens of thousands of pounds each year.

The new system will allow the council to monitor vehicle performance and driver behaviour and allow the council to review routes more effectively, enabling it to reduce fuel use and vehicle wear and service vehicles more efficiently.
 
Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment, Cllr Chris Bond, said: “This computer system will amalgamate three existing systems into one, making our service more efficient and cost effective than ever before and it will have the added benefit of residents not noticing any difference to the excellent service they already receive.
 
“Having good quality information is vital to improving services and making sure they meet the needs of our residents, this investment in computer systems will enable us to do precisely that.”
 
Last year the waste and recycling service collected 117,731 tonnes of household waste and 45,844 tonnes of recyclate from 300,000 bins at 122,000 domestic properties. It has 135 staff and 52 vehicles.
