COPIAGUE, NY – The Town of Babylon and Encon Industries recently unveiled 34 state-of-the-art garbage trucks that will serve the Town and provide tremendous environmental and safety benefits. This new fleet was built by Encon Industries specifically for the Town of Babylon, with each truck depicting a scene of the Town’s beauty. At the unveiling press conference, Town of Babylon elected officials and Encon Industries executives eagerly discussed the benefits residents will experience from the new trucks.
“With the fleet manufactured and delivered ahead of schedule, these beautiful new trucks are ready to dutifully serve our community,” said Town of Babylon Supervisor Rich Schaffer. “They will efficiently clean our streets, all while showcasing the lovely landscapes of the Town of Babylon and saving residents money.”
The Town of Babylon’s new contract with Encon Industries will keep the Town’s garbage taxes among the lowest on Long Island. Encon Industries’ first 10-year-old contract saved residents over $124 million compared to the Town’s previous carter. This resulted in the Town’s per household rate being cut almost in half during this period.
“The unveiling of this new fleet celebrates our continued tradition of savings with Encon Industries,” said Supervisor Schaffer. “We encourage residents to be on the lookout for these new trucks as they enhance our community and keep Babylon clean.”
