Recycle for Mid Devon – Primary School drawing competition

Posted on: 16 April 2018

Winning entries will have a lorry named after them with their artwork displayed on the vehicle

Mid Devon District Council is running another exciting competition for all Mid Devon Primary School children. We would like children of primary school age to enter a drawing which shows what Mid Devon District Council collects as part of its kerbside blue food caddy collection and/or its subscription based garden waste collection.

Leader of the Council, Councillor Clive Eginton, said: “We have 6 new lorries that need names and some lovely artwork. All the lorries have a split body where food and garden waste is collected and stored separately. The drawings should give a positive message to inspire people to recycle their food and garden waste. Food waste sent to landfill doesn’t harmlessly breakdown and as it rots it releases methane – a harmful greenhouse gas that is 25 times more potent than carbon dioxide. Food waste collected from your blue caddy is processed into energy and fertilizer. Garden waste is made into compost which is excellent to mix with soil to grow fruit and vegetables”.

The drawings need to be A4 in size and landscape, using paint, crayon, chalk or any other type of drawing material, but not photographs, sorry. They can be done in school or at home but schools may wish to submit more than one entry. However, only one entry per pupil will be accepted and  the decision the judges will be final.

Other than these rules, pupils can use their imagination so let the creative juices flow! Good luck!!

The competition entry closing date is midnight on Tuesday 8 May 2018 and winning pupils will be notified by Friday 18 May 2018.

All entries must be posted or delivered to:

Mid Devon District Council
Street Scene Services – Recycling Competition
