The city of Rocky River wants its residents to dumpster dive. In fact, officials are ready to reward the rummaging through wastebaskets and trash. Honestly, though, it’s all for fun and a good way to recognize the 51st anniversary of Earth Day on Thursday.
A “Trash To Treasure” competition is being held for residents to show off their ingenuity by transforming trash to art. “To celebrate Earth Day and Arbor Day, we’re inviting you and your family to create a treasure made from any and all items you would otherwise throw away,” according to the city.
Prizes for the best items created from what is considered trash will be awarded by Republic Recycling Services.
No pre-registration is needed. All entries can be dropped off at Memorial Hall from Monday through April 29. Judging will be at 4 p.m. April 30. Winning “treasures” will be on display at the Civic Center from April 30-May 7.
