One of EWD’s skip lorries and one of its tipper trucks have been painted pink to mark the year-long campaign, with the company making a donation for each skip delivery and for each delivery and collection by the tipper.

EWD’s Cancer Research campaign comes after the successful completion of traning for a guide dog, Edward, who was sponsored by the company. Edward has now been placed with an owner to provide assistance.

The Brightlingsea-based company will be recording the progress of the Cancer Research UK campaign with monthly updates on its webiste at www.easternwastedisposal.co.uk .

Anyone wishing to support the campaign with a donation should call the company on 01206 307070. For more information on Cancer Research UK visit its website at www.cancerresearchuk.org.
