The brief is to create a useful item out of single-use plastic materials sourced from the schools waste/recycling stream. The item must be a lower cost alternative to replace something that is currently used in the school. Entries will be judged on creativity, usability, and sustainability.

Each school is limited to one entry. Entries should consist of a brief description of the item, how it fits the brief and 5 photos. Entries must be sent to recyclingweek@recycle.co.nz by the end of Recycling Week, the 13th November 2016. Please upload photos of your entry to Facebook and tag recycle.co.nz.

The top 3 entries will be announced on the 25th of November and will be displayed on our Facebook page. The Warehouse has donated $1000 of Warehouse vouchers in prizes (1st place - $600, 2nd place - $300, 3rd place - $100).
