Big Take-UP & Take-Off for fully electric Kerb-Sort Romaquip RQ-E


The new Romaquip fully electric Kerb-Sort, the RQ-E is revolutionising the Kerb-Side recycling industry and taking the Kerb-Sort to new levels of demand.

Since launching the new RQ-E a few months ago the Birr, County Offaly built RQ-E has been the most talked about vehicle in the industry and we have been receiving many requests to view and demonstrate the vehicles capabilities to current and potential new customers.

The RQ-E will be the first of its kind in the world to go into operation when the new fleet is delivered to Conwy Council in the near future. And with more orders being placed the RQ-E will soon become a regular feature on collection routes around the UK.

Recently it demonstrated the new RQ-E at the 36th British-Irish Council Summit where the First Minister of Wales, Mark Drakeford and An Taoiseach Micheál Martin were in attendance to view the vehicle in operation. During the summit Romaquip Director Stephen McKeown spoke to RTE news and outlined the full capabilities of the vehicle and why it is the top supplier of choice of Kerb-Side recycling vehicles to the UK Market.

A few months ago, Romaquip supplied a new fleet of Kerb-Sort Recycling vehicles to East Lothian Council, Scotland. The fleet is a mixture of our standard 5.0m Kerb-Sort mounted on a DAF 12 tonne Chassis and a new 7.5t Kerb-Sort mounted on a ISUZU Truck chassis.

The new fleet of 17 vehicles went into full operation at the beginning of November and already the Council and the local residents are realising the benefits of using their new Romaquip vehicles.

Somerset Waste Partnership use a fleet of 86 bespoke designed Romaquip Ltd. Kerb-Sort recycling vehicles which were delivered in 2020.

All the Kerb-Sort vehicles supplied have multiple compartments for source segregation of waste at Kerb-Side. The company takes pride in manufacturing robust, high quality, innovative Kerb-Side recycling vehicles, which are focused on meeting customer requirements, all the vehicles are equipped with the latest safety features designed & tested by Romaquip. All are also fitted with high-capacity cardboard compaction, RFID sensors, load weight monitoring, CCTV recording systems to name of a few of the features fitted.
