a new art project to encourage people to recycle more paper and cardboard has been launched in Leeds city centre.

Nine schools and businesses were each given one letter of the phrase ‘recycle me’ to fill with recyclable materials.

On Friday, the letters were placed on Albion Street to create a temporary art installation.

It’s all part of the Recycle Me campaign, spearheaded by creative agency Magpie and Leeds City Council.

Lucinda Yeadon, the council’s environment spokeswoman, said: “We really need everyone’s help to make sure all the paper and card possible is being recycled in our city.”
