Warwick district's recycling lorries get an arty makeover

Leamington Editorial 22nd Jun, 2023   0

EAGLE-eyed residents will spot some new art on the side of the district’s recycling vehicles.

Earlier this year, Warwick District Council encouraged children and young people to send in drawings and artwork showing what recycling means to them, with the winning images being printed and put on the side of the recycling vehicles.

Over 100 entries were received from schools, community groups and individuals, with a whole range of colourful and inspiring designs showing the importance of recycling and its positive impact on the environment.

Ten winners were chosen in various styles, also featuring poetry and even a dolphin.

WDC neighbourhood spokesperson Coun Will Roberts said: “It was great to visit the Biffa depot and see these fantastic designs on the vehicles up-close. I’d like to thank everyone who submitted a drawing and took the time to think about what recycling means to them, and why it’s so important.”

All winning entries can be seen on WDC’s website at www.warwickdc.gov.uk/recyclingcompetition as well as on the side of each recycling vehicle.
