ACE Recycling & Disposal Orders Mack® LR Electric Refuse Vehicle

Mack Trucks announced today that ACE Recycling & Disposal, based in West Valley City, Utah, recently ordered a Mack® LR Electric Class 8 refuse model to add to its fleet. The LR Electric will be used in a residential application in West Valley City or West Jordan City, Utah.

“Mack Trucks is excited ACE Disposal chose a Mack LR Electric refuse vehicle to further its sustainability efforts for their customers in Utah, while also meeting their own sustainability goals,” said Jonathan Randall, president of Mack Trucks North America. “Mack is committed to providing refuse solutions that offer zero emissions and improve sustainability for the benefit of the environment. We are happy that ACE Disposal shares Mack’s passion for a clean environment.”

The Mack LR Electric will operate in a residential setting, with a goal of collecting from about 900 to 1,200 stops each collection day. The LR Electric is expected to be delivered in September and will be equipped with an automated side loader.

ACE Disposal, a 40-year-old company, has a long-standing history of being in the forefront of innovation and alternative fuels for the industry. ACE was the first to order an electric garbage truck and the first to use a CNG garbage truck in Utah. ACE also has xeriscape yard locations, solar power on its carports, geothermal heating and cooling and currently operates 66 percent of its fleet on alternative fuel, equating to 155 trucks.

It’s always been important to ACE to make smart business decisions, while also maintaining a sustainable company for our people and our planet,” said Zach Buhler, sales manager for ACE Recycling & Disposal. “We have a longstanding partnership with Mack for many years. Their quality is top-notch, and as soon as they had an electric truck with battery technology that could last an entire route, it was a no-brainer to order one.”

ACE Disposal operates 370 pieces of equipment, including 250 refuse and recycling trucks, 50 support vehicles and 70 transfer station loading and hauling equipment. Currently, ACE operates 21 Mack vehicles in its fleet.

The next generation Mack LR Electric, launched in March 2022, offers a standard 376 kWh total battery capacity for 42 percent more energy and increased range between vehicle charges. Twin electric motors produce 448 continuous horsepower and 4,051 lb.-ft. of peak torque output from zero RPM.

Four NMC (Nickel Manganese Cobalt Oxide) lithium-ion batteries, charged through a 150 kW, SAE J1772-compliant charging system, power the vehicle and all onboard accessories through 12V, 24V and 600V circuits. The two-stage regenerative braking system helps recapture energy from the hundreds of stops the vehicle makes each day with an increasing load. To accommodate electric vehicles, ACE Disposal upgraded the power coming into its facility and added an electric charging station.

Mountain West Truck Center in West Valley City, Utah, will service and support the vehicle.
