Penske Australia has delivered seven dual control side-loading Dennis Eagle refuse collection vehicles to Blacktown City Council, each sporting eye-catching paint schemes.
The seven trucks, which will commence service of the local government area immediately, feature the striking paint schemes in alignment with several charities including Australian Red Cross, Wheelchair Sports NSW/ACT, Mission Australia, NSW Meals on Wheels, RUOK, and the Better Foundation.
Taking Blacktown City Council’s total fleet of Dennis Eagles to 18, the trucks boast fully integrated safety features such as single low-step entry, tall and wide door openings, true flat floors, large glass areas for maximum visibility, well-positioned grab handles, and a high visibility mirror package.
The Dennis Eagle trucks feature modern ergonomic interiors with comfort attributes including fully adjustable ISRI 6860 seats, steering columns to accommodate all drivers, fridges, storage space, and more, all designed to keep operators performing at their optimum in the demanding residential refuse collection application.
Mayor of Blacktown City, Tony Bleasdale OAM, said the waste trucks doubled as an important communication channel with local residents.
“Blacktown City Council’s charity awareness campaign has been a key feature on all our new waste trucks from Penske, right from the delivery of our first Dennis Eagle refuse collection vehicle in 2017,” said Mayor Bleasdale.
“The rainbow fleet is a bright, positive, and unique way of communicating each individual charity’s message to the residents and visitors of Blacktown City.
