Green and White Patrol

Police have traditionally had black and white cars, and now it seems that refuse haulers have green and white trucks.

Save money by buying trucks in factory white, add a green compactor body and off you go.

With this scheme you need to look carefully to see whose truck it is.

In this case it is not industry giant WM (Waste Management) but RE Group, a locally owned company, part of the Municipal Group, which includes Dexter Construction. Its official name is the Royal Environmental Group. Royal started, as far as I can tell, with the creatively named portable toilet company Royal Flush, and now RE Group serves over 2,000 commercial customers in the Halifax area. It also claims to have the largest fleet of refuse trucks in town.
