18TH MARCH 2014 – STUDENTS CHALLENGED TO ‘BEAT THE BIN MEN’

On Wednesday the 26th March 12-4pm at Orland Village Halls of Residence, University of Bolton students will be getting ready ‘Beat the Bin Men’ in a Total Wipeout /I’m a Celebrity style assault course which has been designed by students.  A team of students will be going head to head against a team of Bolton Council’s finest bin men to see who can collect and recycle the most.  Teams will be battling for first place, racing against the clock, on a 5 stage assault course wading through smelly socks, rat runs, rubbish bags and slime. Students can compete throughout the day where the team with the fastest time will win a mystery prize.

The event has been organised by Recycle for Greater Manchester’s, LIFE + funded Up and Forward project. The project aims to improve recycling levels in Bolton.

Aside from the main ‘Beat the Bin Men’ challenge, the day will be jam-packed with a range of games and activities, including a Bungee Recycling Run as well as freebies and refreshments. The event will have VIP guest including our very own Recycling Superhero.

Fern Lynch, Campaign Officer said: “Students make a massive contribution to life in Bolton and this kind of event is an excellent opportunity of getting the student community involved in the local area as well as raising awareness of how important recycling is in an interactive and fun way.”
