Viridor, Scotland’s leading recycling and renewable energy company, once again supported the schools local to their Bargeddie advanced recycling hub at their annual parent council community fun day.
St Kevin’s and Bargeddie Primary Schools hold the event each year to raise funds for the schools and once again Viridor took on the role of the main sponsor.
With hundreds attending the joint-campus community event, Viridor brought a series of recycling vehicles, with staff talking to the crowds about recycling and road safety. Through competitions, cab rides and visual demonstrations, tots and teenagers alike learned about why placing the right stuff in the right bin is so important.
Commenting on the event, Viridor Bargeddie Logistics Unit Manager, John Templeton said: “Viridor has supported the event for a number of years now and it is always a great fun day out for all the community to enjoy. I am grateful for all the help and support provided by the entire logistics team at Viridor who enabled this event to take place.
“We also had the opportunity to educate those in attendance on the importance of recycling and with the summer holiday’s fast approaching it gave us the perfect opportunity to talk to the youngsters about road safety.
“By sitting in the cabs of our recycling trucks we were able to show both pupils and parents our on board technology and why it’s important to steer clear of large vehicles on local roads.”
Amy Mooney, Bargeddie and St Kevin’s Primary School parent council community said: “On behalf of both Bargeddie Primary and St Kevin’s Primary parent councils, we would like to thank everyone from Viridor who came along to support our amazing fun day.
“They were so generous with the gifts they gave out and the staff put on such a great show with the disco, they never fail to show their community spirit!
“We have a great relationship with Viridor. With one of their main recycling centres across the road from us they are embedded within our community and do so much to support us.”
