As part of their latest program, “Art in Public Spaces,” Sedona Recycles plans to create works from local artists and adorn them on recycle bins located throughout the community. Sedona Recycles is a nonprofit recycling center serving a majority of the Verde Valley, including Cottonwood, Jerome and Sedona. Its Sedona facility is located at 2280 Shelby Drive in Sedona.
Local artist Jack Proctor is the first to participate in the program. Proctor’s plein air Sedona landscape can be seen on the recycle bin for the Saddlerock area located on Saddlerock Circle. Other bins are expected to follow in the coming months, all adorned with high-definition images from local artists.
Sedona Recycles Board of Directors President Thom Stanley said Sedona Recycles sponsored the first art-adorned recycle bin.
