Waste handling

Safe and sound


Maximise time on the road

Safety & security

Avoid accidents and prevent injuries

Environmental performance

Environmental awareness is increasing


You as a waste handling operator need a vehicle with high uptime to avoid costly measures and penalties from the authorities. An unplanned stop will require extra resources for the rental of a replacement vehicle as well as emptying and cleaning the affected compactor.

Safety & security

Refuse collectors in urban areas often operates in crowded environments which puts pressure on the driver and crew. Scania will help you choose the right cab, with optimal visibility, and to offer support systems that help you as a driver to avoid accidents.

Environmental performance

Environmental awareness is increasing throughout the world. Cities are focusing on environmental issues, with stringent demands being introduced regarding CO2, particle and noise emissions and also increasingly demand of the use of renewable fuels, hybrids, or electric solutions.

Scania L 320 6x2*4 Refuse Collector

Our entirely new cab range, L-series for example, offering you a spacious interior with compact exterior measures.

Tailored for the only business that matters. Yours.

There are a variety of types of waste collectors, each designed to fulfil current requirements and to operate optimally.

Rear loaders

Rear loaders have an opening at the rear to empty content of bins into. Often, they are equipped with a lifting mechanism to automatically empty large carts, helping the operator with heavy lifting.

Side loaders

Side loaders are loaded from the side, either manually or with the assistance of a joystick-controlled robotic arm with a claw, used to automatically lift and tip wheeled bins into the truck's hopper.

Front loaders

The front loader is superior for areas with limited access. It operates quickly. For recycling and mainly industrial, multiple-compartment hoppers can be used to carry a variety of sorted materials.

Crane loaders

Suitable for one-man operation. Equipped with a crane controlled by a joystick that enables the driver to control the whole operation when lifting purposed-designed bins.


With the new P-series trucks, you get a low weight cab with great visibility and driveability that is well balanced to suit your specific needs. The P-series is our most versatile cab range, ideal for urban and regional operations and well-proven for construction and other demanding conditions.
