'Tree Served Two Ways' wins 24 Hours in Bristol's Reuse & Recycling Category

The wood-focused image stood out from the crowd in the new category

Bristol Waste Company was proud to support a typically Bristolian event which ran from 12.00pm Saturday 30th September to 12.00pm Sunday 1st October - the ‘One Smart Day in Bristol 2017’ smartphone photo competition.

The range of images at the overall exhibition truly reflected the energy, diversity and beauty of our city. They also depicted some of challenges that all  modern cities face.

Budding photographers were encouraged to enter and capture a day in the life of the city of Bristol. We were thrilled to be part of it and also to sponsor a new category, Reuse and Recycle. It was won by Duncan Nagle’s photo, “Tree Served Two Ways,” a stunning image of a wooden chair next to a stack of aging logs.

This image was chosen as our winner as it is perfectly illustrates our values of reuse and recycling of the materials around us. Wood is a natural material that can be shaped or constructed into everything from homes to phone chargers. We are very supportive of the reuse of materials in both conventional and unconventional ways, and this image helps remind us all of the limitless possibilities. 

Duncan, one of hundreds of entrants of the competition, hails originally from Bristol and attended Bristol Cathedral School. While he has lived in Walsall for a number of years, he still regards Bristol as home. 24 Hours in Bristol tells us that Duncan first entered the competition with his wife Karen last year, however didn’t win any prizes. This year, he scooped four main prizes with his new Huawei Honor 9 smartphone!

Congratulations to Duncan for winning the new Reuse & Recycle category!
