Mack delivers LR Refuse EV to Costal Waste & Recycling

Mack and Coastal Waste & Recycling developed a route to favor for the LR Electric's range, so it can complete a full day's work.

Coastal Waste & Recycling took delivery of its first battery-electric refuse vehicle, the Mack LR Electric model. Mack executives handed over the vehicle during an e-mobility event with the company in Pompano Beach, FL.

Mack tells us that the Coastal Waste & Recycling LR Electric is equipped with an automated side loader. The two companies worked together to develop favorable routing for the LR Electric to ensure that the refuse truck will complete a full day’s work in residential and certain specialized commercial applications.

“Mack is proud to be partnering with Coastal Waste & Recycling in their journey toward electrification,” said Jonathan Randall, president of Mack Trucks North America. “Coastal’s commitment to sustainability is evident through their efforts to bring battery-electric vehicles to serve their customers in southern Florida, and we appreciate their enthusiasm for reducing GHG emissions and environmental care.”

Brendon Pantano, chief executive officer of Coastal, said he ordered the Mack LR Electric refuse truck because of the company’s long-standing relationship with Mack, and Mack’s reputation in the refuse industry.

“As the first private hauler in Florida to invest in electric, such as the Mack LR Electric refuse vehicle, we look forward to harnessing the strength of this strategic move to further elevate innovation in our operations,” Pantano said.
