A young environmental activist has had his countless messages of support for Council waste and recycling crews rewarded with his name on the big screen.
Ciaran, 8, of Greenwood Road has been out nearly every week with mum Michelle Moseley clapping for the Council’s key workers.
He also made a series of posters thanking Council staff for the work they do, and gave Father’s Day cards to a number of waste operatives, including Glen Whitby, the Council’s senior environmental manager, last week.
Crews paid Ciaran a visit on Wednesday last week to thank him, displaying his name on new big screens on Council waste trucks.
The screens are being used by the Council to help residents increase the amount they recycle – for example by encouraging people to start recycling card, glass, paper and food scraps, which will help to reduce smells in rubbish and tackle the climate emergency by reducing the amount of waste sent for incineration.
Residents can order recycling bags and food caddies, and find out more about what they can and can’t recycle at hackney.gov.uk/recycling.
