    Given its unstinting commitments to operational responsibility and sustainability, GBN Services’ decision to invest early in Euro VI truck technology should have come as no great surprise. The construction waste management and recycling specialist was one of Britain’s first customers for the Mercedes-Benz Arocs.

    GBN Services is headquartered in Leyton, east London, and has other depots in Uxbridge, New Southgate, Basildon, Harlow and Southend.

    Up to expectations.

    GBN Services Managing Director Garry Hobson says: “We were keen to try the Arocs at the first opportunity, not least because environmental compatibility is at the top of the agenda for customers who always like to hear what we’re doing to reduce our own carbon footprint. These new vehicles look fantastic in our distinctive orange livery. They are well thought out and ‘fit for purpose’, so built to withstand the punishment that’s inevitable in an operation such as our own.”
