Isuzu modernizes country’s garbage transport system

Isuzu Phils. Corp. (IPC) at its recent Truck Attack event unveiled an REL garbage compactor that’s purported to modernize and economize the garbage transport system in the country. This, according to truck body builder Centro Manufacturing Corp., an IPC partner.

“One of the key elements of a fully operational and properly managed solid waste system is a cost-effective transport system,” said IPC Senior Vice President of Corporate Business Division Arthur Balmadrid. “That’s why Isuzu is introducing the REL garbage compactor that compresses solid waste while in transit and allows the truck to transport from two to three times its normal payload.”

Balmadrid added that truck is expected to lower transportation cost by 50 percent to even 65 percent, and is also clean and odor-free because its tailgate lifter, compactor and garbage bin are totally sealed.

For his part, Centro President Raphael Juan stressed the importance of REL trucks, saying that proper waste management dictates that trash should be transported “cleanly and economically to sanitary landfills.”
