If you want to get creative and do your bit to help reduce, reuse and recycle then make sure to get involved in this year’s Waste to Art community waste competition.
The popular event aims to challenge the perceptions around ‘rubbish’ and celebrate the reuse and recycling of waste through arts and crafts. Schools, community groups and individuals are invited to take up the challenge and create a new life for materials that would otherwise have been thrown away.
The competition is open to all local residents who reside in the NetWaste region, which includes the Mid-Western Regional Council area.
Each year the competition focuses on a different theme, with this year’s theme being “polystyrene”. This can serve as inspiration for creative works, however any recyclable material can be used as long as it demonstrates the re-use and recycling of waste.
