Recycle: the electrical carrier tricycle to collect litter at events
Event organisers who want to ban litter, can borrow an electrical ‘Recycle’ tricycle from Colruyt Group’s environment service free of charge. This Belgian novelty was designed to clean up waste separately at events. The tricycle was used for the first time at the children’s art festival SuperVliegSuperMouche in the Park of Forest. “With the Recycle we want to stimulate people not to leave litter behind”, says Goedele Daems, environment co-ordinator at Colruyt Group. “And we take another step in our more general action plan ‘Joining hands for less street litter’.”
Containers and accessories
The Recycle is equipped with containers for PMD, residual waste and glass and has the necessary accessories for the volunteers on board: brush, dustpan, grabbers, vests and gloves. Today Colruyt Group has 5 bikes freely available to event organisers who want to ban litter and commit to collecting the waste separately. Goedele Daems: “We also loan the Recycles to associations that organise a clean-up action, deliver them for free and collect them afterwards. The organiser has to provide the bike-riders.”
First time at children’s art festival at Forest
The Recycle had its official premiere during the free children’s art festival SuperVliegSuperMouche last Sunday in the Park of Forest. “Ideal surroundings”, says Goedele Daems, “since the organisation wanted to make it a green festival and make the young visitors conscious about litter while they play.” The organiser was also enthusiastic about the new carrier tricycles.
