A special ‘open day’ to recruit more staff to the Hambleton waste and street scene team has found three new employees! 

The district council  recently opened the doors to its Darlington Road depot to allow anyone interested to see the various refuse and recycling vehicles, chat with refuse, recycling, street scene and office staff and get help and advice on completing application forms.

“More than 50 people came along – and we have taken on three of them so far,” said Paul Staines, Director of Environment.

“It was a very successful day and one which we hope to repeat in the future.”
