A SCHOOLBOY had the rubbish job of officially launching a space age "green" recycling machine.
Five-year-old Sean McCann, who attends St John's RC Primary School, Baldock, cut a green ribbon to open the special rubbish recycling machine at the town's Tesco Extra store on the High Street.
Sean won an art of recycling competition organised by the retail giant, where students had to design a poster of a futuristic environmentally themed recycling station.
The poster will be professionally printed and displayed on the side of the recycling unit. He also scooped £100 of Tesco gift cards.
