Viridor’s distinctive green bin trucks will fly the rainbow flag with a specially designed Manchester Pride livery when the company supports the Big Weekend for the sixth year from 24 to 27 August.

 

In addition to the two rainbow flag bin trucks, Viridor will provide five roll on roll off vehicles and 270 bins to tackle the 70 tonnes of waste generated by 35,000 festival goers celebrating the bank holiday weekend.

 

Viridor Key Account Manager Scott Tingey said the Manchester team was delighted to show their support for the festival with the new livery.

 

“Viridor has seen the Big Weekend grow and go from strength to strength over the six years we’ve been involved with the event through our customer Ideal Facilities Management. It is great to truly fly the flag on the vehicles working the festival this year.”

 

He added that as Manchester came together to support the weekend, Viridor would be there to provide a waste management service which will start at 4am until 7am daily, with the company returning from 5pm to 11pm for the second shift.
