Croydon spreads the word with Spedian’s help

Published:  27 October, 2016

‘Don’t Mess with Croydon’ is just one of the messages Croydon Council has incorporated on its fleet of refuse and recycling vehicles.

Each of the 50+ strong fleet has been fitted with a reusable Spedian graphics system showing messages designed to both educate and inform local residents on a range of initiatives and services available. For example, the borough is currently running a campaign to raise awareness of the value of recycling and how recycled products are made into other products.

The system was praised by Joanna Dixon, the borough’s environmental services officer responsible for waste and recycling promotions, for the quality and durability of the graphics.

She said: ‘What better way to reach the local population than by a service which each and every resident receives? The Spedian system is robust, easy to clean, the quality of the graphics is superb and we have never had an issue with the product.’

The graphics can fit all shapes and sizes of vehicle and Spedian says it provides signage to almost 100 local authorities across the UK.
