February 12, 2013 (Newswire.com) - The circular economy is a generic term for an industrial economy that is, by design or intention, restorative and regenerative. The Ellen MacArthur Foundation is an independent charity that aims to inspire a generation to re-think, re-design and build a positive future through the vision of a circular economy.
The current 'take, make and dispose' model common with many industrial processes depletes the world's natural resources and generates an increasing quantity of unwanted by-products, many of which end up in landfill.
A leading provider of both quality used and re-manufactured refuse vehicles, RVS specialises in revitalising second hand dust-carts, stripping them down and replacing or repairing worn and defective parts, to provide high quality 'as-new' vehicles that cost a fraction of the expense of a new vehicle.
Spencer Law, Managing Director, RVS said: "We are honoured to be acknowledged by such a respected, forward thinking organisation and delighted that our activities compliment the drive for a more sustainable economy.
Continued Spencer: "Customers used to sell their vehicles after 5-7 years and then bought new ones, which always seemed like a waste of money and resources to me."
