Croydon Council has incorporated a reusable graphics system on its fleet of refuse and recycling vehicles, to educate and inform local residents of the range of initiatives and services it provides.
More than 50 vehicles in the fleet have been fitted with the system from Spedian, which requires no bolts, rivets, screws or aluminium or plastic frame to fix the advertising panel to the vehicle.
Joanna Dixon, the borough’s environmental services officer for waste & recycling promotions, praised the quality of the graphics and the system’s ability to cope with the daily rigours of providing a full waste and recycling service.
The borough is currently running an eye-catching campaign to raise awareness of the value of recycling and how recycled products are made into other products.
Dixon said: “The use of the Spedian system has been a fantastic way for us to communicate clear messages to local residents. What better way to reach the local population other than by a service which each and every resident receives.”
Both Spedian and the more recently launched Spedian SuperLite system, have both undergone testing at MIRA and as such is guaranteed for the lifetime of the vehicle.
