Subject: Somerset Waste Partnership request
Dear Parish Clerk
This email is in addition to our usual briefing, so we can make a quick offer and call for your support.
The quick offer:
If you distribute welcome packs to new residents, we would be very happy to send you our service guide to all we do, and perhaps a free gift to help them recycle. Just reply to this email, including a rough idea of annual numbers (and early warning if you know of a large development on its way). Thanks.
The call for support:
You will know that crew shortages, especially of HGV drivers, can lead to missed collections and a poorer service for your community. Attached is our contractor's latest advert (as pdf and jpg) for women and men to join the recycling crews as drivers. It is important well-paid local work. If you can distribute the advert, add it to local noticeboards, websites, Facebook pages or your community magazine, we would be most grateful. If you need some text to go with it, please let us know. Thanks again.
We much appreciate your help in encouraging and assisting local people to waste less, recycle more and save money.
