Bakers Waste donate refuse truck to Stephenson College

Written by: Editorial staff | Published:

Leicestershire-based waste management company, Bakers Waste, has donated a fully functional refuse truck to the students at Stephenson College in Coalville with the aim of helping them develop skill sets and enhance future job prospects.

Bakers Waste currently have two apprentices from the college's HGV maintenance & repair course working at the company's head office in Beaumont Leys.

The refuse truck, which was formally out on the roads around Leicestershire collecting trade waste from the likes of Leicester City Football Club, Donington Park and Leicester Racecourse, is now expected to get a second lease of life as a training vehicle for students to get hands-on mechanical experience.

Dr Nigel Leigh, principal and chief executive of Stephenson College said: "The apprentices will have the opportunity to work on vehicles that they will experience in their work environments, and this supports the quality of their experience and its relevance to their employers."

Fleet manager at Bakers Waste, Craig Kimberlin, who completed his City & Guilds Motor Vehicle apprenticeship through the college, added: "This vehicle is relevant to the industry and one that the students can familiarise themselves with."
