Peterbilt announced the delivery of a Model 520EV refuse vehicle to City of Roses (COR) Disposal & Recycling, in Portland, Oregon. The zero-emissions Model 520EV will provide recycling and waste collection services for the city of Portland and advance its environmental sustainability initiatives.
“This is an exciting opportunity both for COR to receive the state of Oregon’s first EV of its kind, and for us to be able to focus on the underserved community of East Portland to improve air quality and provide workforce development opportunities,” said Alando Simpson, CEO of COR Disposal & Recycling.
The Model 520EV is equipped with a McNeilus rear loader and can complete a full day of bin collections on a single charge, the companies said. It provides extended operating range to COR Disposal & Recycling in addition to regenerative braking.
