Finalists need your votes in ‘recycle more’ radio
Pupils from Tower Hamlets are in with a chance
to have their radio advert professionally made and broadcast live.
All primary and secondary schools in the borough were invited to
take part in the Real World Challenge organised by the council's
waste contractor, Veolia, and UTV Media.
Pupils were asked to write and record a
60-second radio advert encouraging listeners to recycle more at
home as part of the U Create project.
Entries were judged and the finalists
were Culloden Primary, Old Ford Primary, London Islamic School and
Central Foundation – both secondary schools.
Commercials by the finalists have now be
uploaded to the Veolia YouTube channel, and the public will be
given two weeks to vote for their favourite.The radio advert with
the most views and likes will then be declared the winner.
Tower Hamlets Council provides a weekly refuse and recycling
collection to residents and figures released for April to September
2013 show that a staggering 2.27 million collections have taken
place over that period.
