The City of Franklin’s Sanitation and Environmental Services Department is rolling out a new program called Blue Bin Recycling which will provide curb-side pickup for recyclable items. We were hired to print, laminate and install custom truck wraps to promote the program. Let’s take a closer look at this fun project!
The nation’s recycling industry has recently changed the way recyclable commodities are collected and managed. Plastic bags are now considered a contaminate of the recycling waste stream. As a result, the collection of recyclable materials in blue bags will be eliminated from Franklin’s recycling program.
Franklin city residents can now opt in to receive blue bins for curb-side pickup beginning in January. Paper, cardboard, certain plastics, aluminum and steel cans can be placed in the containers. For more information about the Blue Bin program, click here.
In order to get residents on board and excited about the program, the city hired us to print and install custom truck wraps on three sanitation trucks. The artwork for this project was provided by the City of Franklin. The photo below shows the graphics as they were printed on high performance wrap vinyl.
Our installers applied a protective UV gloss laminate to the vinyl panels and cut away the white edges to prepare for installation.
Here’s a photo of the installation process. Check out the beautiful shine on that vinyl!
We also printed and cut temporary yellow magnets that say “Delivery Begins Jan. 2020.” These magnets will be removed after the program officially begins.
The City of Franklin made a very wise choice when they selected vinyl wraps to promote their new program. As compared to a one-time newspaper, magazine or radio advertisement, these “mobile billboards” will continue promoting the program throughout Franklin for years to come!
This isn’t the first time we’ve wrapped sanitation trucks for the City of Franklin. To see the witty, retro truck wraps we installed to promote the “Stay Classy Not Trashy” campaign, check out this article: Well, I Declare! These Truck Wraps are Preventing Litter in Franklin!
