The National Refuse Championships


Teams of refuse vehicle drivers and loaders from across the UK gather to compete in a series of races in a bid to win the National Refuse Champions Trophy 2018. Teams of five race against the clock to load large wheelie bins with stones and push them 50m to empty into awaiting refuse vehicles. The process is repeated numerous times as the trucks move forwards towards the finish line. The races take place from 10am until 5.30pm on Saturday 16 June
