CHARLOTTE, N.C. (June 16, 2021) – Amrep –an innovative North American manufacturer of waste hauling equipment – today releases a new rear load refuse truck, the only rear load equipped with Hardox AR500 and AR450 steel body, becoming the toughest rear load truck body on the market. 

The rear-load design is tried and true and have been proven to require less overall maintenance resulting in a savings that can exceed $1,200 per month.
