Upcycle Challenge 2021 is now closed!

Check out our 2021 winners below.

what is the #upcyclechallenge?

It’s simple really.

MyWaste are challenging you to unearth the imagination within and create something new out of something old…to breathe new life into an old or unwanted item or material.

So if you can find something old and renovate it or turn it into something completely different but still usable then we want to see it!

When entering please remember that we need to see the journey you’ve taken,  be sure to submit some pictures of the before, during and after the transformation, make sure to let us know why you did what you did and we want to know what was your inspiration.
