Refuse trucks are essential for collecting and transporting solid waste from residential, commercial, and industrial areas to disposal. Traditional refuse trucks are typically powered by diesel engines and hydraulic bodies, but in recent years, there has been a growing shift towards electric vehicles (EVs) in the refuse truck industry.

Benefits which include reduced emissions, improved efficiency, and quieter operation.
