Ubico collects household waste from some 233,480 households on behalf of Cheltenham Borough, Cotswold District, Stroud District, Tewkesbury Borough and West Oxfordshire District councils. On average they collect around 67,986 tonnes of household kerbside waste per year. They also offer a commercial waste collection service on behalf of Cheltenham Borough, Tewkesbury Borough and West Oxfordshire District councils.

As part of its development plans for the collection of food waste in each of the municipality areas, 21 dedicated food waste collection vehicles were purchased and are now successfully operating in Stroud, Tewkesbury, Cheltenham and West Oxford.

The vehicles chosen for this task, come from the Farid Hillend Engineering Mini Compactor range, which are all Farid Micro L variants, fully sealed, one piece food waste collection equipments with FAI integral comb bin lifts, mounted on Isuzu 7.5t GVW chassis cabs.

Mark Hulbert, Ubico’s Fleet Manager commented, “Ubico collects organic (food and garden) waste from some 233,480 households on behalf of Cheltenham Borough, Cotswold District, Stroud District, Tewkesbury Borough and West Oxford District Councils. The councils offer a weekly food waste service across the boroughs. Prior to the purchase of these dedicated Micro L vehicles we were using food pods fitted to several of our larger recycling and refuse vehicles on some of the contracts. However, we found that this method was not as efficient as using dedicated vehicles. Hence, we have invested in these new Farid Micro L food waste mini compactors, which are proving extremely successful.”
