New Dumpster Mural + Drop-Off Location
We are so excited to announce a brand new public glass drop-off location at Sugarhouse Park! This is the first time the City has hosted a drop-off location at the park, which adds a much needed location on the upper east side of the City.
After an extremely successful launch of the first dumpster mural at Liberty Park, Momentum Recycling and artist Josh Scheuerman partnered up once again to complete a second mural with a winter sports theme. The Liberty Park dumpster mural highlights the beautiful landscape of Southern Utah. Since its initial placement in last Fall, the dumpster has seen a significant increase in glass volume. It is with great enthusiasm that we present the second of hopefully many dumpster murals!
Located at the Sugar Beet Pavilion.
Thanks to talented artist Josh Scheuerman, the dumpster mural process is relatively quick. First, the dumpster must be sandblasted — which was actually completed using the glass recycled by Momentum Recycling! Once Josh starts painting, the dumpster really begins to transform into a work of art.
For the second mural, it was decided to feature another one of Utah’s well-known landscapes — mountains. The mountains emphasize the vast terrain available in Utah for skiers, snowboarders and various winter sports. Josh did a fantastic job of incorporating mountains, the sky, chairlifts and people. The little ski run sign on the bottom is an adorable way to combine art, glass recycling and skiing.
Just like the Liberty Park dumpster, the dumpster at Sugarhouse Park now serves as both a piece of public art and a functional place for residents to recycle glass!
We would love to see you using the newly transformed dumpster. Make sure to tag @momentumrecycling on social media if you are dropping off your glass.
We are actively looking for sponsors/donors to complete more dumpster murals in the future. If you or someone you know is interested please contact us.
