Help us name the new rubbish trucks

This competition is now closed

Thank you for all your brilliant entries. We are currently looking at the name suggestions and will communicate the results in due course.

Guidelines for entering a suggestion

Name the truck image - have you bin thinking of names?

  • We have 11 trucks to name now and you can make as many suggestions as you like.
  • We have limited space for the names on the trucks – check out the mock-up and suggest no more than 17 letters (including any word spaces).
  • You may want to consider a theme, what the trucks are used for, or the campaign around recycling and environmental sustainability. You can supply supporting information.
  • The portfolio holder for Neighbourhood Services, Cllr Natalie Bramhall, will agree the shortlist of names.
  • The crews will make the final choice for the names of their trucks.
  • Keep it clean!
  • We’ll be contacting those who have suggested the chosen names to let them know and invite them to meet ‘their’ named trucks for a photo opportunity, social distancing guidelines permitting.
  • In the case of multiple people suggesting the same name, we will contact the person who made the suggestion first.

Data protection
