Equinox Recycling has signed up to take part in the National Refuse Championships at Weston Super-Mare seafront on Saturday 10th June 2017.

Formerly known as the ‘World Refuse Championships’, this exciting charity event last took place in 1995 and it is hoped that some of the original founders will be in attendance for the new ‘National Refuse Championships’ in June.

The event, organised by Refuse Vehicle Solutions in aid of the Alzheimer’s Society, is devised to test the skills of drivers including tracking and manoeuvring skills, loading skills, health and safety and weight-lift challenges.

The gruelling process is repeated multiple times, as the truck moves in 50m stages towards the finish line. The race will start with a series of timed heats during the morning culminating in a final race between the two remaining teams in the afternoon.
