    I love these posters but unfortunately the colours do not match our school recycling system. Is it possible to change the colour posters recycling - yellow soft plastics - blue general waste - red It would be awesome if this could be done so i could use them to advertise around our school.

      Hi Debbie, A great idea! We have added a second colour combination which will suit your needs better. If there is anything else I can assist you with, please don't hesitate to contact me.
