We are proud to announce the arrival of Bywaters’ very first Electric Dustcart! The sky-blue, state-of-the-art vehicle has been nicknamed ‘Electric-City’ to reflect our mission of reaching Net Zero by 2030!

What are the benefits of our electric vehicle?

Designed to turn heads and change minds. Our state-of-the-art electric dustcart is powered by a significantly quieter motor than traditional dustcarts, making it ideal for use in residential areas. In addition, the unique design of our electric motor allows for smoother and more efficient operation, resulting in fewer emissions and less noise pollution.

Bywaters’ new electric dustcart is the genesis of a fleet of electric refuse collection vehicles we plan to roll out soon. The key benefits include; zero air pollution, zero fuel consumption, and zero noise pollution. We’re confident that Electric-City will make a big difference in improving the quality of London’s air!

Bywaters’ fleet of electric vehicles

John S Glover, CEO of Bywaters (LTD), took us through the process and aims our company has for its first electric dustcart, with carbon emissions and noise pollution clear priorities.

“This vehicle is leading the way, being designed and built from scratch with the fullest “top to bottom” specification. This is NOT a conversion from a diesel vehicle; if there is any sound, it is most like an electric train.”

With Bywaters boasting London’s largest ever solar PV retrofit, the electric dustcart is charged from our East London home, using self-generated renewable energy. A clear step toward our plan of an Electric-City.

“When approaching a stop and slowing, the battery is simultaneously recharged, and physical braking is greatly reduced. This is the future, and it is backed up by Bywaters 4,000 photo-voltaic panels and our two 11,000 volt electrical substations, with an output capacity of 4.3 Mw. Look at the vehicle and look into the future.” – John S Glover, CEO Bywaters (Leyton) Ltd.

Bywaters – building for tomorrow

The new electric dustcart is just one part of our ambitious plan to electrify our entire fleet. The electric dustcart will enable us to significantly reduce our emissions and noise pollution, creating a more efficient and environmentally-friendly way to collect waste. We are confident that this is just the first of many steps we will take towards achieving our goal of reaching Net Zero.

We look forward to a future in London that consists of more innovation and less pollution. 

The electric dustcart is a game-changer, not only for Bywaters but for the entire waste management industry. Our Electric Dustcart leads the way toward a cleaner and brighter future with cutting-edge technology and sustainable design!
