Color Carrollton program aims to turn trash cans into treasures

Color Carrollton is back with another opportunity for residents to show off their art skills.

Participants can sign up to paint one of 16 industrial-size trash cans for the athletic fields at Carrollton’s McInnish Sports Complex (2335 Sandy Lake Road). The theme for this season will be Summer Nights.

Participants must complete a Color Carrollton agreement stating they will submit their design idea for the trash can in writing and return the painted trash can.

Residents must register before 11:59 p.m. May 27 at, complete an agreement and send an email with the design to Space is limited.

Trash cans are primed with a white base coat and can be picked up the week of June 6 through June 10 at Rosemeade Recreation Center (1330 E. Rosemeade Parkway).

Finished, painted trashcans must be returned at Rosemeade Recreation Center no later than July 8. Acrylic paint is recommended.

A deposit of $25 is required and will be refunded if the agreement is followed and the trash can is returned. City staff will seal the trash cans with an outdoor protective topcoat after participants drop off their finished cans.
