BRAIN FOOD: Matters for the mind to chew on - Unlikely managers - Refuse collector, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk - Name Walter Thurtle

Name Walter Thurtle

When did you become a manager? In the early 1970s when I changed career. Before then, I worked at local farms getting rid of waste and packing corn, but I had an accident in which lost I part of my hand as well as my tractor licence. When I drove again, I bought a dust cart to capitalise on the waste removal industry. Today I operate within a 25-mile radius of Yarmouth, and have four skips with between four and 10 men.
