Supreme Award Mural - Calling all artists!

We need your help to paint a beautiful mural at the Henderson Road Transfer Station.

Last year when we took home the title of New Zealand’s Most Beautiful City and the Supreme Award we won a Mural sponsored by Resene.

Over the coming years, our vision is to work with our community to change the Henderson Road Refuse Transfer Station, commonly referred to as ‘The Dump’, into a Resource Recovery Centre where materials are diverted from landfill, recycled, upcycled, fixed and where possible put back into the local economy.

We want the new site to help people follow the principles of the waste hierarchy and become a less wasteful community.

This is also the theme we have chosen for the Mural. We really love this design from Smart Recycling - Dandenong South – Australia. In a similar manner, we would like to see designs where it could be continued around the walls of the transfer station at a later date by different artists.
