Ilkeston-based WFP Fabrications is supporting a new national campaign called Whack-A-Bin, being championed by national publication, Skip Hire Magazine, in a bid to save lives throughout Derbyshire.

The campaign encourages waste disposal workers to ‘whack’ the bins and skips before taking them away, to make sure that homeless people are not taking shelter inside, after a man was tragically killed in a waste disposal accident in Nottingham in April 2014.

Matthew Holmes, managing director, said: “WFP Fabrications has tried to highlight the need for education into these sorts of incidents, and believe that the process starts with the manufacturer.”
