New Way showcases its new side loader at WasteExpo

The company will introduce its new automated side loader The Wolverine at WasteExpo this week in Las Vegas.


New Way Trucks is displaying its Wolverine truck at booth No. 2150 at WasteExpo in Las Vegas until Thursday. The Wolverine comes equipped with features of New Way’s best-selling Sidewinder XTR in a smaller package and is available in body sizes of 10-, 12-, and 14-cubic yards.

Also on display in New Way’s booth are units showcasing key New Way customers, including a Mammoth front-loader celebrating the company’s partnership with Waste Connections and its 25-year anniversary in conjunction with New Way’s 50th year in business, Marin Sanitary’s auger-driven ROTO PAC ASL and the latest New Way Sidewinder XTR highlighting its customer GFL.

In addition to the units in display New Way’s booth, four other New Way trucks are at WasteExpo: a Cobra Magnum rear-loader (RL) in the Peterbilt Motors’ booth (No. 2426), a Sidewinder XTR in the Dennis Eagle’s booth (No. 1051), a Viper RL in the ERE’s booth (No. 551) and a narrow body battery-electric Cobra RL in the Battle Motors’s  booth (No. 1251). New Way Trucks currently has more battery-electric refuse vehicles on route today than any other body manufacturer.

A longtime supporter of the Environmental Research & Education Foundation (EREF), New Way also donated a work-ready truck to be auctioned off live in EREF booth Wednesday at 3:30 p.m. Pacific. The 11-yard Viper RL is mounted on an International HV207 chassis and comes equipped with a Perkins D6620-27k Tuckaway Tipper-Bar lifter. New Way also donated two VIP passes to a day in the company’s suite at the 2023 WM Phoenix Open and a two-night hotel stay to the EREF Silent Auction. Bidding on this package is open now.

New Way CEO Mike McLaughlin also is one of the newest members of the EREF board of directors.

“We are proud to stand behind EREF’s mission to develop and evaluate new approaches to manage municipal solid waste and to provide scholarships to America’s future waste and sustainability professionals,” McLaughlin says. “New Way is honored to have participated in every aspect of EREF’s fundraising efforts. We hope to see a great crowd at the EREF Live Auction on Wednesday afternoon.”

Another recent industry board appointment involved New Way Vice President Don Ross. The National Waste & Recycling Association (NWRA) elected Ross to chair its board of trustees. His term began Monday morning.

Additionally, New Way’s controls team is eager to show off features of its industry-leading Sidewinder XTR ASL, including considerably faster cycle times, cooler operating temperatures to improve performance and extend system life, the availability of real-time data collection and mission critical KPIs and better performance for compressed natural gas and lower horsepower vehicles.

“WasteExpo is always an exciting event for us, but this year is special because it’s the first time the whole industry has gotten together on such a large scale in quite a while,” said Don Ross. “Not only do we get to officially introduce the under-CDL capable Wolverine, we’re also excited to display more of our cutting-edge product lineup and support EREF’s critical mission."
