Million tonnes poster competition

  Sponsored by Hills Waste Solutions

The winner of the million tonnes poster competition, Jessica Milstead of Fynamore Primary School, Calne, recently saw how her design has transformed a lorry into a mobile advert for recycling in Wiltshire.

There was an amazing response to the competition, launched in August 2011, with nearly 300 entries received from school children across Wiltshire.  

Jessica won a £20 book voucher and a computer for her school. She is pictured here with her mum, Petrina, and Mike Webster, group director of Hills Waste Solutions.
