Local drawings to appear on new bin lorries

Drawings from local children highlighting the importance of recycling are being featured on new bin lorries, North East Lincolnshire Council have announced.

More than 200 people entered the bin lorry artwork competition, which was based on the theme of recycling, last year.

Of these, 25 were selected to have their artwork displayed on the side of the new lorries.

13 additional entrants were chosen as winners for their suggested names for the new bin lorries.

These include Binson, Binosaurus Rex, Trucky and Rita the Rubbish Eater.

Councillor Stewart Swinburn said:

“It’s fantastic that so many people took the time to enter the competition and help spread the word about how important it is to reduce waste and recycle as much as you can.

“I’d once again like to say a huge congratulations to the winners of both the artwork and name suggestions.

“I’m pleased to say the artwork is now up on the new wagons for everyone to enjoy as our bin crews continue to work hard making their way around the borough serving the people of North East Lincolnshire during these difficult times.”

All artwork winners are to receive a model bin lorry with their drawing on, as well as having their original artwork framed and returned to them.

The council is also awaiting the arrival of one more bin lorry, which will display the drawing produced by residents at Fairways Care Home, along with their suggested bin lorry name ‘Justin the Dustbin’.
