A bag made out of plastic bags, monsters from old tin cans, a giant dragon fly from assorted junk iron, wind chimes, flip flops made from used yoga mats, that was only a small portion of the creativity that could be seen at the “Recycled Art Show”.  The judges for the event were members of the City’s Recycling Committee, Nicole Baldwin, Joylene Gardner and Bruce Setterstrom.  The Event was well attended by the public  and most were astonished by what creation could come out of  household garbage.  The Art Show was so successful that the City will hold it again to bring attention the our “throw-away society” and bring to mind the importance of recycling, not only is it good for our environment but it will prolong the life of our landfill.
