Litter Poster Competition

The Parks Trust and The Waste and Recycling Team at Milton Keynes City Council asked Milton Keynes' primary school-aged children to help us design a poster to encourage people to keep their parks and community spaces free of litter.

Our expert panel were blown away by this year’s entries and had a tough time shortlisting a selection for the public vote, but we’re delighted to present our winners with their certificate and the chance to see their posters displayed across Milton Keynes.

Michelle Abiola – KS1 winner from Saint Bernadette’s Catholic Primary School

Willow Wiseman – KS2 winner from Hanslope Primary School

They’ve also earnt their schools an outdoor learning session, plus a set of handy litter pickers to help staff and pupils safely clear away any litter they come across.

The annual poster competition runs in conjunction with MK City Council’s Waste and Recycling team to coincide with The Great British Spring Clean. Look out for next year's competition going live in Spring to get your school involved!

    The cost of removing litter from across Milton Keynes' green space is enormous, it already costs us over £400,000 a year.
