Midlands waste management specialist opts for MAN 8x4

West Midlands waste management and recycling company, Haz Environmental has taken on a new MAN TGS 32.360 8x4 with specialist vacuum tanker equipment from Whale Tankers. The eight-wheeler joins two MAN 26 tonne 6x2 curtain-siders, with a third due to enter service January ‘14.

The new TGS 32.360 is acquired on a lease agreement through MAN Financial Services.

“We already operate two very good-quality MAN trucks on our fleet,” said Managing Director, Gary Perks, “so, from a management point-of-view, the decision to stick with MAN was an easy one. However, our drivers, ultimately, make the final choice on new vehicles. Happily, their unanimous decision fell in favour of MAN.

“Image is very important to us too,” added Perks, “the MAN-Whale combination certainly offers a striking on-road presence and I’m very happy that our customers can see that Haz Environmental uses high quality products.”

The MAN eight-wheeler features vacuum tanker equipment from Whale Tankers – Carbon steel vacuum tanker to comply with Whale ADR product ‘List 6’ (specifiying which materials the tanker can carry).

Haz Environmental boasts all the necessary accreditation to operate in the waste management sector, including ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and SAFE contractor status. In addition to waste management, removal and recycling, the company also provides a complete range of industrial cleaning services.
