Thanks for supporting Worcester’s waste crews
From cheering and clapping, to colourful messages stuck to the bins and even gifts - Worcester residents have been really showing their support for the city's waste crews during the lockdown.
Now Worcester City Council is returning the compliment, with massive signs on the sides of two 26-tonne waste lorries reading, "Your waste collection crews thank you for your help and support."
The trucks will be seen on streets all around the city over the next few weeks, to bring the message of thanks to the thousands of city residents who have shown how grateful they are that bin collections have been able to continue despite the lockdown.
A Worcester City Council spokesman said: "It's been overwhelming to see the support residents have shown the bin crews at this difficult time. Everywhere they go they've been clapped, cheered, found messages of gratitude waiting for them – and even a few gifts.
"The signs on these two vehicles are a great way of saying thank you to the people of Worcester for their help and understanding during the lockdown."
