Education News | Recycling lorry Designed by Longparish Little People | Andover & VillagesThe little people at Longparish Little School are thrilled to have recently unveiled their new recycling lorry thanks to Raymond Brown Waste Solutions and their Community Matters initiative.

At the end of last year the children at Longparish Little School were invited by Raymond Brown to use their imagination and creativity to design posters themed around the importance of recycling. The winning posters were then displayed on the lorry, which has now been named after Longparish Little School.

At the unveiling ceremony the children got to see their winning designs on their recycling lorry. They also talked to members of the Raymond Brown team and had a sit in the new lorry too.

Claire Nash, Longparish Little School Manager, commented: “Given our beautiful countryside setting it’s important to us and our children that we learn about and look after the environment. Our new Raymond Brown lorry is a great interactive way to get the children engaged about recycling and the importance of it within their homes and our community. The children loved seeing their colourful designs on the lorry and had lots of questions about the recycling process”.

“Longparish Little School would like to thank Raymond Brown for providing this great interactive experience and for contributing to our excellent learning environment. The children say ‘we will be able to wave at our recycling lorry when we see it driving by’.”

Colin Bolam, Sales Director at Raymond Brown, said: “We’re committed to working with schools, colleagues and community groups to develop programmes that educate and inspire the future of our industry. We really enjoyed seeing the children’s poster designs about recycling and their excited faces when they saw them on their lorry. We know they’ll be keeping an eye out for us when we’re out and about!”
