Friends of St Nicholas Fields (St Nicks), based in York, has been providing an efficient and sustainable recyclable waste collection service to the city since the early 2000s.
Using electric trucks and load-bearing pedal powered tricycles, the team from St Nicks can access hard-to-reach areas of the city.
However, as the areas it serves have expanded, it’s become harder for its collection vehicles to get to these locations.
With the help of iTravel York and funding from the eCargo Bike Grant Fund provided to City of York Council, St Nicks was able to add two ecargo bikes to its fleet. This means it can continue delivering its services to a wider area while also improving the sustainability of its operations.
