Santa Clarita residents transformed recycling bins into works of art and displayed them alongside the environmental services booth at the city’s annual Earth Arbor Day Festival on April 12 to be judged by a panel of three city staff members and festival attendees.

“We wanted to promote recycling, and one way to do that was to bring more attention to the environmental services booth,” said Mark Patti, city of Santa Clarita’s project development coordinator. “It’s also fun to do and gets people participating.”

Best Local Flair: “Someone’s Been Recycling in our Bin”Votes were cast based on five categories: Grand Prize, Most Creative, Best Local Flair, Best Green Theme and Fan Favorite, city officials said.
