 YS Art Cans Project


Beth Holyoke and Käthi Seidl are hoping to continue their exciting Art Can project to enhance YS sidewalks in a creative and useful way. By clearly labeling and locating them strategically, the new sets (trash + recycling) of Art Cans will make it easier for people to separate recycling and landfill waste and, therefore, improve waste management downtown.


The Village has invested over $4000 in four sets and now it is hoped that the business community will be interested in sponsoring the project to help it move forward. All sponsors will be recognized on the cans and in promotional materials. Sponsorships range from $100 to $1500.
