What is an Artic wagon?

An artic wagon, also known as an articulated wagon, is a vehicle that features a pivot joint. This means the wagon can accommodate more storage space and length, while still being able to navigate tighter corners that would otherwise be impossible without the pivot joint in place.

Other articulated vehicles include buses, trams, tractors and even watercraft that have a pivot joint to help transportation and navigation.

What do we do with the waste collected?

We have a wholly-owned, state-of-the-art 17-acre recycling centre in Blackrod, which we use to process all waste that comes through. In doing so we aim to recycle 100% of all the materials that come through our recycling centre, diverting as much as possible away from landfills.

What waste can’t your artic wagons collect?

Unfortunately, we cannot collect, haul or recycle any medical waste or hazardous waste among others due to not holding the relevant licences, as well as not possessing the necessary equipment to recycle and process the material in a safe and environmentally conscious manner.

If you have waste of this nature that needs collecting and transporting we recommend that you search the Government website to find a licensed service provider.
