Meet our Waste Heroes

Children looking at garbage trucks

You’ll see these colourful characters on our waste collection trucks, out and about on the streets collecting your household waste. 

Each character comes with their own inspiring ideas on how we can follow their lead, change our everyday habits and work to reduce everyday waste. 

Our Waste Heroes were created by 11 creative local schoolchildren. Find out some fun facts about each character and see who you can spy next time you spot a waste truck in your street.
