Cleanaway is proud to feature new inspiring truck artworks created by students from across Narrabri Shire, Moree Plains Shire and Gwydir Shire. These artworks were created based on the theme “Be green, keep your recycling green” and were selected from the 2020 Truck Art competition run with respective councils.

Caitlyn Taylor from Narrabri High School won first place in the Narrabri Shire Truck Art Competition. Her artwork, which she described as being fun to draw, demonstrated clearly how simple it was to recycle and the environmental benefits. On one side, she drew waste going into the green bins with a green tick, and while waste on the other side on the ground with a big red cross.

In Moree Plains Shire, it was Annie who won first place. Her bright and gorgeous design clearly articulated how to recycle right and what items can and cannot go into the commingled recycling bin.

Six year old Annabelle Todd won the Truck Art competition in Gwydir Shire, with her artwork that emphasised the importance of sorting waste and recycling properly. When asked what she learnt about recycling from the competition, Annabelle said “That you can reuse what you put in the bin.”

The winning artworks are now featured on selected trucks throughout the respective councils, so keep an eye out for them during the weekly bin collection.
