BYD electric garbage truck now servicing Seattle

BYD, a US-based manufacturer of commercial electric trucks, has delivered an all-electric refuse truck for use in Seattle, Washington. BYD says it’s the first electric Class-8 rear loader in the US.

The vehicle features BYD’s 8R Class-8 truck fitted with refuse equipment maker New Way’s Viper Rear Loader refuse body. The vehicle is now in operation with waste collection company Recology, servicing the city of Seattle.

Recology VP Derek Ruckman said, “By partnering with the City of Seattle, BYD and New Way, we can be a catalyst to effect positive, sustainable change, setting the stage for what a 21st-century refuse truck should look like.”
