14 DAF electric trucks collect waste in and around Eindhoven


The Dutch company Cure Waste Management is procuring 14 electric trucks from DAF Trucks to collect household waste in Eindhoven, Valkenswaard and Geldrop-Mierlo. Seven CF Electric trucks, equipped as refuse collection vehicles, have already been delivered. The others will follow shortly.

The trucks are 6×2 vehicles equipped with fully electric VDL side loaders. That means the hydraulic system for lifting the refuse containers is located on the side of the vehicle instead of the rear. The electric trucks still to follow are not side-loaders. Six of the remaining CF Electric are fitted with a classic, all-electric rear loader, and one comes “with a cleaning system for cleaning both surface and underground waste containers.”

“We try to work in as sustainable a manner as possible and this series of fully electric CF Electric trucks matches perfectly with that ambition,” says Frans van Strijp, managing director of Cure Waste Management. “The trucks ensure quiet and zero-emission collection of garbage, which is great news for the residents of Eindhoven, Valkenswaard and Geldrop-Mierlo. And our brand new charging station allows us to rapidly charge multiple vehicles at the same time.” However, the Dutch do not provide more precise data on the charging station.

Cure Waste Management is a joint venture of the Dutch municipalities of Eindhoven, Geldrop-Mierlo and Valkenswaard. The company collects waste from almost 150,000 households, including general waste, paper, plastic, glass and organic waste. Cure Waste Management also operates four recycling centres in the Eindhoven region.

DAF electrified its CF truck range in cooperation with VDL Bus & Coach in 2018. The CF Electric is a 9.7-tonne tractor unit designed for applications of up to 40 tonnes in urban areas. The model has a 210 kW electric motor that can deliver up to 240 kW at peak. 2020 saw the introduction of a new generation of batteries. Since then, the battery in the CF Electric has a gross capacity of 350 kWh, of which 315 kWh can be used. The range is around 200 kilometres.
