Recycling: On your trike

London recycling company First Mile has invested in a fleet of four electric trikes as part of its strategy to decarbonise its recycling collections and reduce congestion in the capital. Each of the custom-built trikes can carry 250kg of recycling, the same operational capacity as a 3.5 tonne van, and cover 25 miles on a single battery charge, saving 20.26 kg of CO2 emissions per day.

First Mile CEO Bruce Bratley said: “Our customers love the new bikes and the fact that they are so small and easy to operate means we have better access to areas where recycling collections have historically struggled, such as back streets and mews.”
