Is your youngster a recycling hero? Do they know what does and doesn't go in the blue bin? Perhaps they're emptying bottles and rinsing cans and yogurt pots - and making sure other family members recycle right!

Then Fenland District Council's new Recycling Hero competition is for them!

To test children's recycling knowledge, and give them a fun challenge to complete during the coronavirus school closures, the Council's expert Getting It Sorted recycling volunteers have been busy creating a colouring competition for kids aged 5 to 16.

Check it out online where you can download and print a range of recycling hero templates to be coloured in and completed. So, get your colouring pens and pencils ready and don't forget to tell us how well you and your family recycle.

Entries can be sent to gettingitsorted@fenland.gov.uk or posted to:

You can also display your creations in your windows at home to show your support for your bin crews, or share on social media tagging @FenlandCouncil and using the hashtags #recyclinghero and #gettingitsorted.

There will be some super prizes up for grabs for the winners, which will be announced after the competition closing date on 20 July.

Cllr Peter Murphy, the Council's Portfolio Holder for Environment, said:

"It's great that our fabulous volunteers have generously spent their time designing something for the kids to do during the school closures, and help them learn about recycling.

"Staying at home during this difficult time is creating even more waste for us to recycle. In Fenland, we are good at recycling, but we can always be even better recyclers! Let's ensure that the people working hard to check, collect and even sort our recycling have the easiest time by 'Getting It Sorted' and checking that we empty, rinse, wash and check our recycling, which is especially important at the moment due to the extra pressures on staff. 

"I look forward to seeing your entries and deciding our winners - always a tough job! Enjoy being Recycling Super Heroes!"
