New Jersey Town Finds Long-Term Solution For Truck Fleet

Borough of Collingswood

New Jersey


The Borough of Collingswood, NJ is a historic South Jersey town of around 14,000 residents known for its destination downtown and has taken home both regional and national recognition as one of the best towns in the Delaware Valley.

In early June 2021, Collingswood Mayor Jim Maley received an email with news that his current waste hauler was unable to pick up the town's trash because they didn't have anyone to drive the trucks.

Already facing prior pickup delays due to the nationwide driver shortage, Collingswood scrambled to gather together its own municipal workers to pick up trash, recycling and yard waste. The town needed a long-term solution for its truck fleet.



The Borough of Collingswood contacted Big Truck Rental and utilized its nationwide fleet of trucks. With Big Truck Rental's national cooperative contract through OMNIA Partners, the borough was able to get two 25-Yard Rear Load garbage trucks in only a matter of a few days in like new condition.



Big Truck Rental provided the trucks needed to build a municipal sanitation department in only a few days. Each truck was equipped with cart tippers and a winch so that the Borough could collect both residential carts and rear load dumpsters. This allowed Collingswood the flexibility to catch up on its missed pickups and gave the borough the dependable fleet it needed to provide its residents with consistent service moving forward.
