Bilsthorpe Flying High Academy Visit

Last Tuesday we welcomed pupils from Bilsthorpe Flying High Academy to site. The visit which is the latest part of our support of the local school gave the pupils a chance to see behind the scenes at how we operate and process waste, along with the chance to play truck driver sitting in one of our curtain side collection vehicles.

We also took the opportunity to test our weighbridge by weighing the group!

Pupil Erin Mather, (10) said: “It was awesome and the driver’s seat is really bouncy to protect the driver from road bumps. There is also a small TV that helps the driver to see all around the lorry to make it safer.”

John MacNamara, managing director, said: “The children were all interested, intelligent and well mannered; they are a credit to the academy and their families. It was great to be able to explain how a local company recycles garage waste and ultimately protects the environment.”

Academy head Lisa Turland said: “Oakwood Fuels have been supporting the academy and have played a key role in helping us to deliver some successful family events at the school.”
