A palace fit for Recycle-King

Fort made out of recycled materials and cardboard

Congratulations to Abbie and her younger brother Max who are March’s gallery winners.

Abbie, aged 7, and Max made a castle from cardboard boxes, paper, parcel tape, toilet rolls and ice lolly sticks. We think it’s a palace fit for a Recycle-King!

Our Recycle for Greater Manchester gallery has had lots of entries over the last few months from children across the city-region.

Do you want to share a recycling project with us?

Take a photo of something your child has done relating to recycling at home – it could be a picture or poster, a poem, or a sticker. It could even be a photo of your recycling bins being used correctly at home.

We will display their work in our gallery and once a month a winner will be chosen from all the entries in each month. Please upload a landscape photograph.
