Oregon Refuse Fleet Takes Delivery of Peterbilt Model 520EV


Peterbilt has delivered an all-electric Model 520EV refuse vehicle to City of Roses (COR) Disposal & Recycling, in Portland, Ore.

Leaders from COR Disposal & Recycling, Portland General Electric Company, the City of Portland,  McNeilus and Peterbilt recently gathered to reveal the new Model 520EV and celebrate this electrification  milestone.

“This is an exciting opportunity both for COR to receive the State of Oregon’s first EV of its kind and for us to be able to focus on the underserved community of East Portland to improve air quality and provide  workforce development opportunities,” says Alando Simpson, CEO of COR Disposal & Recycling. 

The Model 520EV is equipped with a McNeilus rear loader and can complete a full day of bin collections on a single charge. It provides extended operating range to COR Disposal & Recycling, in addition to regenerative braking. 

Peterbilt says it has a dedicated team available to help identify the best EV configuration for customer  operations, locate available incentives and help choose from the wide selection of PACCAR chargers and  infrastructure solutions.
