Brighton students asked to enter recycling competition

First published in News

Environmentally conscious students are in with a chance of winning festival tickets.

Students at the Brighton universities are asked to take part in the Student Recycling Champions competition.

The contest has been launched by recycling programme Every Can Counts and festival organisers Festival Republic to encourage people to recycle more at music events.

Winners will snap up tickets for Reading or Leeds Festival this summer.

Students must submit a 500 word entry or two minute video demonstrating an idea for improving recycling at festivals and six winners will be chosen.

Entries by email to studentchampions@citypress.co.uk by midnight on June 8.

Recycling as opposed to chucking all their crap in the street at the end of their tenancies or all over the Dyke? That would be nice.

Hilarious. You should see the disgraceful state of Coombe Road most days and particularly at the weekend as students piled up plastic bags of rubbish onto the streets which were then ripped open spilling food and vast amounts of waste over the road and pavements. It stayed there for days.
I'm taking photos of it now for an installation art piece for next year's fringe festival. I'm going to see if some of the letting agents will sponsor a gallery for me as their to let boards are outside these slum homes.
I've got a great photo of this filth against the backdrop of a Vote Green poster in the window of a nearby house.

AFAIK the greens get most of their votes from activist students (who don't pay rates and don't pay taxes!) so you'd think they would have no problem writing 500 word essays in support of the environment.

I just can't work out how you recycle students though?
