Marlet’s environmental ethos extending to waste collection
19th June 2020 – Marlet’s development, Mount Argus, in Harold’s Cross was selected by AES Bord na Móna for the trialling of the first in a new game-changing fleet of zero-emission electric refuse collection vehicles (eRCVs) as part of its ongoing environmental commitments.
On its first day in operation in Ireland, the zero-emission ‘Dennis Eagle eRCV’ conducted multiple successful test lifts at Mount Argus. The residential development, consists of 179 energy-efficient apartments and numerous environmental elements in its design – including the new AES waste compactor system, Epac, which helps reduce the carbon footprint while enhancing the environment of the development further.
From Mount Argus, the truck made its way to the Dublin Waste to Energy facility in Poolbeg for conversion into electricity rather than to landfill.
Already recognised for its particularly sustainable focus in property development, Marlet Property Group was an obvious choice for AES’s demonstration. “Marlet Property Group are true to their commitment to sustainability. The exercise in Mount Argus was conducted flawlessly and demonstrated in real time the concept of ‘closed loop’ resource recovery.” explains Ciaran Brady, Head of Resource Recovery at AES Bord na Móna.
Pat Crean, CEO of Marlet was pleased to support the initiative: “We see it as our responsibility to provide sustainable homes and buildings for the city for people to live and work in, and we are delighted to facilitate such innovation and work with AES. We are constantly challenging ourselves to reduce our environmental footprint and incorporate the latest sustainability innovation into our projects, and AES’s new fleet certainly resonate with that ambition.”
What residents will be very pleased about in addition to the general environmental contribution of reduced emissions is the fact that the RCVs are quieter and cleaner, so benefitting the areas they serve enormously.
Marlet’s hope would be to see these vehicles in all its developments in the not-too-distant future. “It’s just one of many good news stories that we love to be part of in our goal to reshape the city’s urban landscape in a sustainable way,” added Pat Crean.
