Council has been running the Waste to Art competition for six consecutive years now.

The annual competition and exhibition aims to challenge our perception of waste and look more closely at what we are throwing away to see if it can be reused, repurposed, or upcycled rather than ending up in landfill.

Please refer to the COMPETITION FLYER for more information.
