If you are a NYC artist this may be a great opportunity for you.
NYC’s Department of Sanitation is seeking to transform 5 of their garbage trucks. The zero-waste project is Trucks of Art and each truck would be painted by a different artist. The requirements are an idea that either represents the city’s strongest or one that encourages New Yorkers to recycle. So you know where this is going.
So it is in our opinion that these trucks should send a green message. Waste management in NYC is huge. When the city had a landfill of its own, everything was seemingly all good. But this is no longer the case. We do not have a landfill anymore. The last was Fresh Kills landfill. It saw its last dump of trash in 2001 and it is now a city park. As a result, since its closing, NYC sends its trash to landfills out of state. This is not fair.
Therefore, this is Stay Blooming reaching out to fellow environmentalists and artists. As a city known for its creativity, it makes sense to use art as communication. Residents need to be encouraged to actively participate in the recycling process. It needs to interest them. It needs to be personal. This way they are mindful of how they accumulate trash. As a result, this artistic opportunity is very important to prevent trash.
