Trash(Can) to Treasure Public Art Activity

Trash(can) to Treasure is an annual event that happens in the Spring of each year.  Details about the event are posted when they become available.

Become a public artist and help beautify Lower Paxton Township parks by transforming a trashcan to treasure!

How It Works

Lower Paxton will provide plain metal barrels which you will create into a special work of art.

  1. Choose a theme for your trashcan. The theme should reflect public activities in Lower Paxton Township.
  2. Fill out a registration form and return it to the Friendship Center.
  3. Come to the Friendship Center during regular operating hours and pick up your trash can. You supply your own paint and brushes. You may paint your cans on the patio of the Friendship Center.
  4. You may paint your organization name or individual name around the bottom of the can. In accordance with the Township policy, advertising of business is prohibited in parks.
  5. Trash cans must be finished and returned to the patio of the Friendship Center by the close of business.
