Your local waste and recycling crew need you!
People are being urged to get on the road to a new career and help keep essential recycling and waste services running in their local community, thanks to a recruitment drive by FCC Environment.
The campaign to attract more qualified LGV 1 and 2 drivers is FCC Environment’s latest step towards tackling the issue. At the end of July, FCC Environment joined others in the sector in urging the Government to do more to protect vital waste and recycling services critical to public health and the environment, as well as the economy. In a letter to the Home Secretary, FCC Environment called for the introduction of a temporary worker visa for LGV 1 and 2 drivers, and for the occupation to be added to the official Shortage Occupation List, until such time that there are enough qualified UK nationals available to fill these positions.
