Recycling gets creative

Winners of the art competition

We invited budding young artists who live or go to school in Spelthorne to take part in our recycling art competition in the spring edition of the Bulletin.

We asked them to draw a landscape picture no larger than A3 along the theme of 'why it is important to recycle'.

The winner chosen was Sia Singh, age 7, from Riverbridge Primary School who was awarded a WH Smith voucher, book and certificate. Her picture highlighted how long it can take for waste to decompose if it is not recycled. 

Cllr Nick Gething, Portfolio Holder for Environment and Compliance, said:

"It is great to get young people thinking about the importance of recycling and looking after the world we all live in. Thank you to all those who took part and well done to our winner."

Well done also to Aarya Thombre, Alicia Rogerson and Anik Inder Singh who received a runner-up prize and certificate. The winner and runners-up visited the Depot and all got the chance to ride in Spelthorne's new waste and recycling vehicles.
