Euro 6 Mercedes Econic Hire RCVs for ULEZ

Euro 6 Mercedes Econic refuse truck ulez compliant

In preparation for the enforcement of Ultra Low Emission Zones we have ordered a batch of euro VI compliant refuse vehicles specifically for the rental fleet.


The first stage of the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) comes into action on the 8th April 2019 as part of a Government scheme to reduce air pollutions in our larger cities such as London. In brief this affects diesel cars, vans and trucks which will have to be euro 6 emission compliant in order to enter the zone(s) without paying a daily penalty charge of up to £100. This has had a huge impact on companies, across many sectors including the Waste and Recycling industry, who operate within these geographical areas. Their options have been to move quickly to invest in later equipment, hire vehicles in, prepare to pay the fines or trade elsewhere.

Euro 6 Hire

As well as updating the age profile of our hire fleet to also coincide with the above we have acquired a batch of 2018 and 2019 Mercedes Econics that are euro 6 compliant and can enter ULEZ zones as a long-term contract or spot hire vehicle to cover you if your truck is off of the road – The first of which is already being operated by a London Local Authority!

We have more on order which will be available shortly with a choice of split or trade bin lifts, as well as some 2019 Mercedes Econic 70/30 Twin Packs, so with April fast approaching if you are taking the hire option then don’t hesitate to contact us on 01522 778982 or at
