Hudson County Motors and BYD announced July 22 they will provide the first all-electric refuse trucks on the East Coast capable of working an entire route. These five all-electric rear loader collection trucks will go to work on normal daily collection routes, providing regular zero-emission collection services for the City of Jersey City, New Jersey.
The project is being supported by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection and Sanitation Equipment Corp. of Totawa, New Jersey. Hudson County Motors is BYD’s fully authorized truck dealer for Northern New Jersey, including Bayonne, Elizabeth, Jersey City, Newark, and Trenton. Based in Secaucus, Hudson County Motors is well positioned to support the New Jersey electric refuse truck market.
Hudson County Motors has partnered with Climate Change Mitigation Technologies LLC (CCMT), a pioneer in medium- and heavy-duty commercial fleet truck electrification projects. CCMT is providing project management services for all of Hudson County Motors’ electric truck programs.
