Model of the BYD truck purchased by J&M Sanitation

Category: Electric Trash Trucks and Buses

•    J&M Sanitation is a small family owned refuse collection company that has serviced the cities of Kuna & Melba for the past 32 years. J&M strives to provide customers with the best service possible and is excited to be the 1st refuse haulers in Idaho to have 100% electric collection vehicles.

•    The trucks are partially funded by an award through the Idaho Volkswagen Diesel Settlement.  Two older diesel trucks will be taken off the road with the electric truck replacements.  

•    J&M Sanitation will be getting two BYD 100% Electric Class 8 Automated Side Load trucks.  Delivery should be in November of this year.

•    The trucks will run every Monday through Friday and will service about 800 Kuna homes per day.

•    Each truck will have 295kwh battery capacity. It will take about 8 hours to charge each truck to full capacity each night.   Faster charging will be available to “top off” the trucks during the day as needed.
