What is recycled or upcycled art? It is work created from 75% or more discarded material—stuff that would have otherwise piled up in storm water drains, vacant lots, or in the landfill. Help us to celebrate Open Space Spring Clean ups in the Foothills and all efforts that keep our city clean throughout the year.
