Mayor of Newport gives recycling prize

WINNERS of the Metals Matters competition were awarded with their prizes by the mayor of Newport following a bid to raise awareness of metal recycling.

To celebrate the launch of the Make Your Metals Matter recycling campaign, Newport council gave people the chance to win a prize which can be made from recycled metal packaging, including a digital camera, MP3 player, watch and a kettle.

To enter, competitors were asked to name two metal items that can be recycled through their green kerbside box. They were also asked what metal recycling meant to them in less than 20 words.

Newport mayor Cllr Cliff Suller awarded the prizes at Newport Wastesavers office.

Ann Davies, of Bassaleg, won the top prize of an ipod nano.

Her winning tie break answer was: “Metal recycling matters to me, because on the earth remade, in the earth degrade, from a kettle to a tin, in Newport we’ll win.”

Cans, aerosols, tins and foil can all go in your green recycling and the empty can could be back on the supermarket shelf as another can in as little as six weeks.

The Council holds recycling in such high veneration
That it's now even recycling Newport's regeneration
Newport, Oh Newport the crime rate is mental
The shops they all scarpered because of high rental
Yet never mind our reputation, still less our leaky 'space age' railway station
As, hey man, we're like kewl cos we're environmental!

We've recycled the memory of our brave and noble chartists
With historical revisionism and state-approved artists
Old mural bad; new mural good, decrees a wealthy patrician
If it shines with glowing favour on some local politician
And Lo, summit comes forth at which to NATO bigwigs humble Newport it will pander;
As we welcome in a brand new year of still more propaganda!

Amen;)
