In 2020-2021, the University recycled 59% of their waste. With an aim to recycle 70% of waste, there needs to be new measures in place to help achieve this.

Competition Brief

We’re looking for designs to create a ‘wrap-around’ of key recycling bins on the SU roof area. You may submit your designs as a PDF or image file that we can work with. We recommend creating a design that fits A3 size. You can create an alternative suggestion of design, as long as you submit a small detail to outline the idea with your submission. If your design is successful, we will work with you to make sure what you imagined is represented in the final piece. 

  • Aesthetic 
  • Informative
  • Durable/Sustainable
  • Thought Provoking

Check out the University website to find more information about the University’s waste and recycling processes.

If you are interested, please download the file at the top of this page which has more detail on what we are looking for and information that can help you provide the best design.

Deadline: 6th May 2022, email your entries to Mads Morton (

There will be a £200 CASH prize for the winner.
