Pupils create bin lorry design celebrating recycling


Cherwell District Council’s kerbside recycling scheme has been running for 20 years

Two pupils from Christopher Rawlins School in Adderbury are behind an eye-catching design which can now been seen on the side of two Cherwell District Council bin lorries.

Ava Smith and Mollie Malcher got creative as part of a competition to celebrate 20 years of kerbside recycling collections in the district.   In recognition of their achievement Ava and Mollie received a visit from members of the waste and recycling team earlier this week, so they could admire their artwork, which now emblazons large panels on a vehicle.

The lorries also contain the creation of a second winner – Skyler from Southwold Primary School in Bicester.

Local schoolchildren were challenged to create a design based on the theme of celebrating recycling. Over 100 submissions were considered by a panel of judges.

Councillor Adam Nell, Deputy Leader of the Council, said: “Over the years we have run an innovative recycling service, with the addition of new programmes for complex materials like electronics and coffee pods. But in the years to come young people will absolutely be at the forefront of the continued shift to a more sustainable way of living, so it is very fitting to see their passion for the environment captured on two of our bin lorries in this way.”

The two designs both feature on the two bin lorries, one of which empties bins in the north of the district and the other of which works in the south.
