Southern Oxfordshire residents are being invited to vote for their favourite names put forward by local schoolchildren for a new fleet of food waste recycling trucks.
Whether it’s Chomper Charlie, Green Gretil or Banana-Munch Bob, names suggested by primary pupils are out for public vote. Residents can choose their top three out of ten names whittled down from dozens thought up by local children.
The most popular will be printed onto the districts’ new food waste trucks and residents will see them out and about on the roads carrying out weekly food waste collections.
The children whose suggested name gets the most votes in South Oxfordshire and Vale will scoop £150 book tokens for their school and a swimming pass for their family.
It’s quick and simple to vote at: http://survey.southandvale.gov.uk/s/SouthTruckNaming/
Cllr Tony Harbour, South Oxfordshire District Council’s Cabinet Member for waste and recycling, said: “The food waste trucks are brand new and we wanted to do something to celebrate this while having a bit of fun too. Getting school children involved in the names has been a great way to help spread the recycling message. We’re really impressed with all the suggestions and hope residents will support them by voting.”
Voting will close on Friday 16th February.
