Design a logo for new anti fly-tipping group in Devon

A new partnership formed to tackle littering across Devon needs you to design a logo.

Clean Devon has launched a competition to find its logo - if you design the winning entry you'll win 100 pounds.

The partnership, which will launch in the new year, will bring together environmental groups, the emergency services, businesses and local authorities to combat fly-tipping.

"We’ve all been for a walk in a park, down a country lane or across a field only to find discarded rubbish, an abandoned fridge or a pile of chipboard in our path," the group's release reads.

"This environmental vandalism blights communities; litter and fly tipping is not only unsightly, it is a growing financial burden on society.

"It can have serious public health consequences and impacts on our agriculture, wildlife and tourist industry.

"It is critical that litter and fly tipping is tackled with an innovative, enterprising approach – and that’s why Clean Devon is being formed."

It says each of the group's involved will share expertise and intelligence and work with businesses, communities and parish councils to put a stop to it.

The group says it wants a logo "that captures the ethos of working for the common good of the environment".

Entries should be submitted by 22 November through the Recycle Devon website.
