A gleaming pile of rubbish is towering above Blackpool Council's offices in the middle of the town centre - in the name of art.
The waste tower shining out over Blackpool
Named The Power and the Gory, the piece of artwork is made up of a collection of rubbish, including recyclables such as plastic and glass bottles. It is built around a steel frame and illuminated from the inside to create a bright and colourful effect.
The aim of the tower is to make Blackpool's residents and visitors think about the amount of waste and rubbish they produce. It is composed of items that could be recycled or reused, most of which were found at a waste transfer site in Blackpool.
Blackpool Council says its residents threw away the equivalent weight of 30 of the waste towers last year, sending most of it to landfill.
Trainor said: "There's something very gratifying about turning something ugly into something beautiful. I'm totally behind the recycling principle and the idea of using Blackpool's waste to create a piece of artwork is great."
