Partners to design a Hybrid powered vehicle which not only will save amounts of fuel in excess of 40%

The City of Hialeah recently decided to implement Automated Recycling Services for it residents. They worked with our partners at Autocar and Parker –Hannefin Hydraulics and Heil to design a Hybrid powered vehicle which not only will save amounts of fuel in excess of 40%, lessen the carbon footprint of the fleet substantially, but will have the latest available technology to maximize the efficiency available in routing and safety. Sunbelt’s ability to integrate the truck, body, and visual camera system, GPS system, communication system, and routing system is unique in the industry. This will all be tied to a Sunbelt installed RFI (radio frequency id tag) monitoring system to identify each residence as it is picked up weekly with a computerized back office that will promote the increase in recycling that will monitor the decrease in the cost of land fill for the City.




Sunbelt is now working with the engineers at Heil Envionmental and FAB Industries to design more Refuse Collection Vehicles

Choice Environmental, a Ft. Lauderdale based Regional hauler, chose to implement CNG (compressed natural gas) as part of its GO GREEN initiative over a year ago. The initial costs approach $1,000,000.00 for the Station alone. Sunbelt is now working with the engineers at Heil Envionmental and FAB Industries to design more Refuse Collection Vehicles and bodies to hod the CNG tanks in safer and more efficient ways. Presently, a Rear Loader and an Automated Side Loader are in development. Choice, Heil, and Sunbelt believe that this is only the beginning of our continuing development of integrated environmental solutions
