If you’ve always wanted to add a touch of style to a trash cart, the City of Santa Clarita is providing the perfect opportunity. Now through Friday, March 30, residents can register to pick up a free trash cart, decorate it, and be entered into a contest for prizes as part of the City of Santa Clarita’s CArt Competition.
Community members are encouraged to transform trash carts into vibrant pieces of art using paint, art supplies, recycled items, and creativity to increase awareness of reusing and recycling household items. School groups, clubs, teams, church groups and other organizations are encouraged to participate.
All submissions will be on display at Earth Arbor Day on Saturday, April 14, 2012. Cash prizes will be awarded to winners at 2 p.m. on the main stage at the event, in the following categories: Grand Prize $200; Most Creative $100; Best Local Flare $100; and Best Green Theme $100.
Everything used in the art project, with the exception of the cart, must be provided by artists. Carts can be painted or left natural. Materials or containers that once held hazardous waste products like paint, oil, pesticides, cleaning products, and chemicals are not permitted to be used in the competition.
All entries must be submitted between 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. at the Environmental Services booth. Earth Arbor Day will be hosted at Central Park on Saturday, April 14, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
For more information on the CArt Competition or to obtain an entry form, please contact Brendie Heter in the City’s Environmental Services Division at 661-286-4031.
