Oslo (NTB): Søppelbiler from renovasjonsselskapet Veireno several times in January have been running with too much garbage. Thus, they broke both the top allowable payload and its own anbudsløfter, according to VG.
VG has gone through every garbage disposal so far in January at Haraldrud gjenbruksstasjon in Oslo, and compared the weight of the load, with how much each car is allowed to carry. The newspaper has come to realize that søppelbilene ran 113 times more than the maximum permissible payload.
– Veireno do not accept that it be run with overload. It is a sjåføransvar and there is a display in the car that indicates whether you have overload or not, out from the vehicle, ” says Veirenos logistikkdirektør Svein Werner. The company stated that they are now going to go over and check all the cars.
Leader Erik Tangen in Utekontrollen in the Norwegian public roads administration says they look serious on the matter. The city of Oslo states that they do not have sanctioned such deviations yet, but promises that the matter will be a theme.
In the tender set there own requirements for how much garbage each car can be loaded with, in order to reduce the number of bags that cracks when the garbage is pushed together in the car. The requirements are lower than the cars legally can run with.
Earlier in January got Veireno 12.000 million in fines after one of their søppelbiler drove around in Oslo with three tons of too much waste on board. (©NTB)
