Waste Creative – an award-winning success!

Waste Creative Information Booklet

Waste Creative, the recycling project run by Woodend Artists and funded by Recycle for Greater Manchester has come to the end of it’s first phase. The project consisted of a series of workshops based around using rubbish creatively and culminated in the production of an information pack and DVD about recycling.  The project also included a visit to the Materials Recovery Facility in Manchester, composting workshops and choosing some local recycling champions.

The project was launched at New Charter’s head offices in Ashton-under-Lyne where we had an exhibition of all  the artwork created, gave out the completed packs and had a film premiere with the animations the group created.  All the groups and their parents were invited to the launch along with the press and the funders.

A week later the project won the ‘Love where you live’ award from national organisation and environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy.

Below are some images of the artwork created during the project…
