Waste Truck Art Competition

We have two new waste trucks which we need help decorating, so we’re running an art competition for local school kids. The winning artwork will be printed on the trucks for everyone to see. Students from years K-6 are invited to design a colourful and creative artwork relating to our theme: “Choose to Refuse Plastic”.

Competition closes on Friday 9 August 2019.
