Art can be found everywhere in Sedona.

While that includes a number of pieces on public display from Uptown through West Sedona, as well as numerous galleries, these pieces of art now include recycle bins.

Alex Rovang, director of education and community outreach at Sedona Recycles, kneels Wednesday, Oct. 31, next to a recycle bin on Saddlerock Circle that has recently been adorned with artwork of a Sedona landscape by Jack Proctor. As part of Sedona Recycles latest program, “Art in Public Spaces,” the nonprofit organization plans to create works from local artists and place the art on recycle bins located throughout the community.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.

    Glad to see the article about Sedona Recycles in the Nov. 2 issue. The entire crew at Sedona Recycles is A-1 First Rate, especially Alex Rovang who appeared in your story about the art program. The other day, I saw Alex following the (wounded) cat that lives at SR to make sure he/she was OK. I'm sure that isn't part of his job, just a tenderness in his heart. Richard
