Women (and men) wanted for the National Refuse Championships 2020

Women (and men) wanted for the National Refuse Championships 2020

THE most popular event on the waste and recycling calendar, the National Refuse Championships, returns to Weston-super-Mare on Saturday 13 June 2020 and event organisers are calling for men and women who work in the waste and recycling sector to sign up.

Spencer Law, Founder of the NRC said: “We are looking for 32 teams this year, and we’d like to encourage more female teams to enter. It’s not just for collection crews and drivers; staff working in offices, sorting facilities, workshops or out in the field are welcome too.”

The event brings together employees from local authorities, vehicle and equipment manufacturers and private waste collection companies, to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society by racing up and down Weston-super-Mare beach lawns.

The gruelling races involve teams of five people – drivers, loaders, workshop and office staff – who race against the clock, testing their strength and stamina, loading wheelie bins with sandbags before pushing or pulling them 50m to be emptied into an awaiting refuse vehicle.

The winning team will be presented with a trophy and £3000 worth of Centre Parcs vouchers.  First place runners will receive with £1250 of Buy-A-Gift vouchers and second place runners up are given £1000 of Buy-A-Gift vouchers.

The National Refuse Championships is a superb spectator event and provides a FREE, fun family day out with something for the whole family, with food stalls, fun fair rides, a Kids Zone and the races of course!
