Ten students at Buxton Community College have been awarded prizes in a recycling competition organised by local mineral water brand Buxton and recycling organisation Recoup.
The competition prompted hundreds of students design posters aimed at encouraging fellow pupils, staff and the wider community to recycle more.
The two first-prize posters were chosen because of their colourful, artistic designs and clear messaging, said the organisers. One of the one winning designs will be featured in local schools while the other will be on display at key locations around Buxton.
Luke Cox, Recoup's project officer, said: “By working so closely with schools, such as Buxton Community School, to install recycling bins on site, we are already seeing an increase in recycling levels – it's just become a daily habit for staff and students alike.
“This competition has proved just how passionate young people can be about these issues and we're confident that if our children are motivated to recycle more, everyone will reap the benefits, now and in future.”
