Waste materials roar back to life for Carnival

The Telford Carnival 2018 will return on Sunday 15 July and Veolia, the recycling contractor for the borough are entering an upcycled dragon into the parade!

Unwanted items are being transformed to make the mythical creature which will feature in the parade through parade through the centre of Telford to the Town Park QEII Fields in Trust Arena. The company has been working with Telford & Wrekin Council and artist Dave Young to create the masterpiece. 

Steve Mitchell, Veolia Director Midlands West said “We are proud to be supporting Telford in celebrating its 50th birthday. The Telford Carnival is a fantastic event for families to enjoy across the borough and we hope they will attend to see the grand unveiling of our float. 

“The dragon is currently being upcycled into life using items from our Household Recycling Centre in Hortonwood. We are excited to see the float finished and brought to life by artist Dave Young.”

Dave Young, Sculptor said “I am thrilled to be working with Veolia and Telford & Wrekin Council. It is going to be an amazing parade with some fantastic creatures on show.”
