Spedian sees opportunities in Northern Ireland
Published: 14 March, 2017
Spedian will exhibit at the CIWM (NI) Conference & Exhibition on 29 March after several councils expressed interest in its reusable vehicle graphics systems.
The company has been raising its profile among local authorities that want to run public information campaigns on their vehicles and it says it has received several invitations to tender from councils in Northern Ireland.
Councils in Northern Ireland have recently undergone a reorganisation in which smaller councils merged to form larger ones. Vehicles are being rebranded and new strategies adopted for public information campaigns.
Lawrence Craig, CEO of Spedian, said: ‘We decided to exhibit in Northern Ireland because it is a good time for local authorities there to reconsider their public information campaigns and Spedian can help them.
‘Vehicles, such as bin lorries, visit every street in a locality, making them ideal messengers for campaigns such as promoting waste recycling or picking up after your pet.’
He said among the messages that councils in Northern Ireland want to promote is a national drive to reduce the amount of food waste going to landfill sites. New rules on food waste disposal from certain commercial enterprises came into force last year.
Regulations are to extend to smaller businesses on April 1 this year and some local authorities in Northern Ireland are already reorganising their domestic rubbish collections to encourage recycling of food waste.
The CIWM (NI) conference and exhibition is being held at the Eikon Exhibition Centre, Balmoral Park, Sprucefield.
