Seven DAF garbage trucks, part of a total order of 14 vehicles, have been delivered to Cure Waste Management, taking care of waste collection in the Dutch Eindhoven, Valkenswaard and Geldrop-Mierlo areas. In particular, the company collects the garbage from almost 150,000 households, including general waste, paper, plastic, glass and organic waste.

The quiet and zero-emission 6×2 trucks are equipped with fully electric VDL side loader, which allows waste containers to be emptied quietly and fully automatically into the body of the CF Electric. At the heart of the DAF CF Electric is a 210 kW (240 kW peak power) electric motor powered by a 350 kWh (315 kWh effective) battery pack. This provides the truck with a range of around 200 km.
“We try to work in as sustainable a manner as possible and this series of fully electric CF Electric trucks matches perfectly with that ambition,” commented Frans van Strijp, managing director of Cure Waste Management. “The trucks ensure quiet and zero-emission collection of garbage, which is great news for the residents of Eindhoven, Valkenswaard and Geldrop-Mierlo. And our brand new charging station allows us to rapidly charge multiple vehicles at the same time.”
