Central Bedfordshire Council is asking residents to name its waste trucks

Council has 34 new, and nameless, waste and recycling trucks

Central Bedfordshire Council (CBC) and its waste and recycling collections partner FCC Environment have a fleet of 34 new waste and recycling trucks. And CBC wants residents to get involved and help to name them.

The trucks will be collecting; glass bottles and jars; plastic bottles, pots, tubs and trays, food cans, drinks cans, cartons, garden waste, and much, much more.

CBC wants inspired names for its trucks and the 34 best responses, as selected by our panel of judges, will feature on the side of the trucks.

Cllr Ian Dalgarno, executive member for Community Services said:

“The trucks took to the roads in February as part of our new contract with FCC Environment.

“The new contract will improve efficiency and deliver value for money whilst also giving us the opportunity to introduce new recycling services to our residents later in the year.”

All entries must be less than 25 characters, CBC ask that all residents “keep it clean” and the ideas should be sent by midnight on 22nd March 2020.

Entries can be tweeted to @LetsTalkCentral #bintrucks or join the conversation on Facebook @LetsTalkCentral or email your ideas to nameourfleet@centralbedfordshire.gov.uk.
