West Suffolk Trade Waste has launched a new fleet in order to get the ‘job done'

Published:  27 June, 2013

Newmarket's racing stables are being visited by new RCVs from the West Suffolk Trade Waste fleet. Resplendent in new livery the vehicles have white cabs and brilliant orange bodies bearing the words' Job done'.

Mark Walsh, Head of the shared Waste Management Service for Forest Heath District and St Edmundsbury Borough Councils commented: ‘Newmarket is an interesting part of our business which covers the whole of the west of the county. It is home to 3000 horses and our tailored service helps yards to keep down costs by recycling their substantial feed and bedding packaging. And as we do cleansing and landscape work, we recycle as compost too.'

The ‘Job done' promise is one that has strong political and commercial backing. Mark explains:

‘We took advantage of the delivery of the new fleet to rebrand. The simplicity and boldness of the design is very effective and seems to be getting the message across. We are all in the business of sustainable growth and prosperity and luckily our remit helps us do both. Helping enterprises to avoid unnecessary landfill costs improves our recycling rate and helps the local economy to prosper. The ‘Job done' message shows we mean business, in all senses of the word.'
