As they do with their finances, Tucson leaders in their continuing effort to make bad garbage look good, announced on Friday that on February 5, 2016, the City of Tucson garbage department will unveil and begin delivery of five big metal garbage bins that have been painted with murals.
The City of Tucson garbage department used hard earned taxpayer dollars to contract with the Tucson Arts Brigade to coordinate the pathetic project. Additional funding was provided by the Graffiti Resource Council in Washington, DC.
Five Tucsonans have designed and painted the garbage cans which will be provided to businesses to the few businesses that remain in the located in areas that have a high potential for graffiti and tagging. The City, working with the Tucson Arts Brigade hopes the program will also improve urban aesthetics and ultimately save taxpayers money on graffiti abatement.
