REFUSE vehicles in North East Lincolnshire are sporting a new livery from this week.

Residents in North East Lincolnshire will be able to spot the vehicles, which are used to collect around 3,000 tonnes of household waste each month, driving around North East Lincolnshire this week.

The new design is aimed at encouraging more residents to consider becoming foster carers, supporting children to grow and thrive, and is part of a campaign to mark the national Foster Carer Fortnight celebrations.

Councillor Margaret Cracknell, portfolio holder for children and education at North East Lincolnshire Council, said:

“Becoming a foster carer is an incredible privilege, and an incredible role.

“Foster carers can make a huge difference in a child’s life. As a foster carer, you can be the person that enables a child or a young person to have the opportunity to live in a loving, stable home.

“You’ll be well supported from the team and from our partners, in helping children to thrive, and become the best that they can be – sometimes in some incredibly challenging circumstances.

“If you’d like to know more about becoming a foster carer, please get in touch.”
