Big Reuse Receives All-Electric Delivery Truck at New Gowanus Reuse Center

This week Big Reuse received an amazing new all electric truck - the Mitsubishi Fuso eCanter.  This zero-emission work truck was funded through the Office of the New York State Attorney General’s Urban Clean Air Truck Demonstration Project.   With a daily range of 60 miles on one charge, all-electric trucks are perfectly suited to the many hub-based pickups we make every day around New York City, allowing us to efficiently reduce our carbon emissions and soot pollution.
 
Big Reuse will use the truck for picking up and delivering material to the building supply and home-goods reuse center and to our compost sites. Big Reuse is an environmental not-for-profit dedicated to zero waste, reducing the impacts of climate change by diverting waste from landfills, and creating green jobs through social enterprise.
 
We are thrilled to be one of six local non-profit organizations receiving funding from the Office of the New York State Attorney General’s Office to demonstrate the economic, efficiency and environmental benefits that all-electric delivery trucks could have for New Yorkers.  The demonstration project is funded by a $9.5 million settlement the Attorney General’s Office reached with American Electric Power, the largest U.S. power company, over the company’s violations of the federal Clean Air Act.
 
The move to our new premises at One 12th St Brooklyn behind Lowes in the old Pathmark building on the Gowanus canal this month allowed us to set up a dedicated charging station with the help of ChargePoint Inc., on our loading dock.
 
Come check it out at the new Big Reuse location, 1 12th Street Brooklyn.
