The next provincial truck to haul garbage is expected to be a fleet of trucks that haul up to 1,000 kilograms of rubbish a day.
That’s about twice as much as a previous generation of trucks.
But it’s not the biggest the province can do.
The current fleet of garbage trucks is roughly the size of a pickup truck.
(CBC News)The first provincial garbage haulers have been operating for more than a decade.
And now, according to the minister of environmental affairs, the next batch of trucks will have a new name.
That would be the Kinder Morgan Trucking Co. The company, which is the nation’s largest by haul volume, is the biggest private company in the province.
It’s currently operating a fleet called the KTM-1.
It carries about 2,000 tonnes of garbage a day, more than the average haul from other haulers.
That truck is about two metres long.
It can carry up to 2,100 kilograms.
It has to haul up the garbage on its own and the government is providing $1.2 million for the new truck.
The government says it will pay the company $1,200 a tonne.
It also wants the truck to carry more than 1,100 kg.
That will be more than double the current amount of garbage it has.
The province has been pushing for a fleet that is large enough to haul as much garbage as the current fleet.
The trucks are not yet finished.
It is expected by the end of this month to be ready for service.
The new trucks will be about the size, shape and weight of a truck and can carry about 2.5 tonnes of waste a day — a lot more than any other hauler.
But the government has said the new trucks are a big improvement over the current model.
The truck will be capable of handling up to 500 tonnes of cargo.
Kinder Morgan has been working on the new model since December 2017.
It received its first order for 2,500 trucks in 2019.
The first batch of the new fleet will be delivered by the first quarter of 2020.
The next batch will arrive in 2020.
And the next one by 2020.
It will have to haul it to a landfill.
Kinder said it is working to find an environmentally friendly way to do that.
“It is our intent to move toward the same level of waste management that the current trucks are currently using,” the company said in a statement.
The provincial government says the new drivers will also be able to handle up to 100,000 kg of garbage in less than 30 minutes.
It says the trucks will also have the capacity to haul about 10,000 kilometres per year.
Kinder says it is also planning to increase the truck’s fuel capacity by 25 per cent.
But its not just the cost of the trucks that has increased.
Kinder’s environmental assessment says it has increased the total cost of operating its trucks by $300 million.
The Ministry of Environment says the cost for the vehicles to be built will cost an extra $500 million.
Kinder did not respond to questions about why it has not yet started on its new fleet.
It said it has been studying the possibility of building a fleet but the government says that could take more time.
In January, Kinder told CBC News that it would be looking at the environmental assessment process to decide whether to proceed with a new fleet or to look for another company to operate the trucks.
Kinder also said it would seek approval from the federal government before it could start construction on the vehicles.
The federal government did not return CBC News’ calls.
