Recycling Bins: Design A Logo CompetitionDon’t forget that the competition for kids from Ventnor to design a logo for the new beach recycling bins has only a few weeks left until the closing date.

The competition is open to kids of primary school age who live in Ventnor, St Lawrence or Bonchurch – they don’t have to go to school in Ventnor, but must live here.

The competition is split into three categories:

Children of reception age are invited to design the logo for the ‘Cans’ bin.
Years one and two can have a crack at designing the logo for ‘Glass’ bins
Years three and four get ‘Textiles’

The logos and slogans should be on an A4 piece of paper and returned to schools (or the address below) in Ventnor by Friday 29th February at the latest.

The design can be either drawn, painted, a collage or designed using the computer.

The logos will be judged in March and the lucky winners of the most original designs will have their logo on the recycling bins!

If you don’t attend school in Ventnor, but still want to enter the competition, please send your entries to:

So how are those heavy users recycling their stuff at the moment, presumably they have been put somewhere else temporarily?

Matthew Chatfield

Sal and Mark are right. These bins were part of the new Blue Flag requirement and so were aimed specifically at beach users. As such they’ll probably be in place during the beach season only (normally May-Sept). Of course anyone can use them if they want but we don’t particularly want people driving down to the esplanade just to empty their bottle bin.

According to the Council web site the most compehensive recyling point in Ventnor is a the Cascades (prsumably the one you are talking about) – it doesn’t say that if you are not using the beach you should not be using it. If you in say (as I am) Alexandra Gardens then it is the obvious place to recyle. I would have thought you should not be… Read more »
