On Saturday May 16th, 14 students from Saugatuck High School came together to paint 10 cans that will be put on Oval Beach and around the City of Saugatuck this summer. The cans promote throwing trash away rather than littering the landscape. Liz Engle, a local community member, presented the project to the Interact Club earlier this year. Engle liked the idea of the project because it supported beach clean up. From there, the idea of brightly colored trash cans was born. The Interact Club was given a variety of bold, colorful paint to decorate the metal trash barrels. The cans were then covered with fun designs and phrases that promoted throwing trash in the cans, rather than tossed onto the landscape. The cans were picked up last week, and they will make their debut within the next few weeks.
