Newsletter - JUNE 2017

Last Saturday, Weston-super-Mare seafront came to life with a large crowd cheering on teams of Refuse Collectors, competing in the National Refuse Championship - held for the first time in Somerset.

This fun day out for 18 hard working crews, from all over the UK, allowed them to show off their strength, speed and precision - strictly monitored and judged for speed, safety and accuracy.

After a morning of mini-leagues, where the 5-man teams competed against each other, the finals were held in the afternoon after a fun-run competition between main sponsors Dennis Eagle and Gulliver’s Truck Hire. The eventual National Refuse Championship winners, following a close final against Grist Environmental from Wiltshire, was Aylesbury Vale District Council, and their team were crowned 2017 champions at a post-championship awards party. Pictured below are the victors with event organiser Spencer Law, MD of RVS.

All in a Good Cause
The event, organised by Refuse Vehicle Solutions, was well supported by some of the major UK Refuse Industry businesses, with over £12,000 being raised to support the Alzheimer’s Society in their fight against dementia.

Most people know somebody who is suffering from this terrible illness and we should all do as much as we can to support them and their families.

Special thanks
RVS would like to thank the event organiser Tracy Standing (pictured below left) for her dedication and organisation skills, without her the event would not have happened and to the RVS staff for their many unpaid hours working on the project.

Gulliver’s Truck Hire for their support sponsoring a Friday night pre-event party. Dennis Eagle for being headline sponsors (huge help from David Williams, pictured below right) and the several photographers on hand to record the event.

The Areca Design team supplied, at zero cost; the logo-design, website, banner and literature design.
Mick Hurst, the founder and Managing Director was on hand to take photographs during the event. Mick has supported RVS since our launch in 2010 and we would highly recommend his creative design and digital marketing services.

National Refuse Championships 2018 – 15th-16th June
After such a successful event, plans are already in place to run the National Refuse Championships next year again at Weston-super-Mare, hopefully bigger and better, with more refuse crews taking part. We are planning a larger trade exhibition area, a family zone, more entertainment and an opportunity to raise even more funds for the Alzheimer’s Society…
