Dont Trash NYC is made up of four works of public art, created in partnership with Mos Carting, a local business that collects and recycles building materials in dumpsters throughout the City. The artists researched how garbage is dealt with in New York City, and came to understand that space is running out in which to contain it. The mural team wanted to show that recycling reduces trash in urban areas, improving quality of life, while also preserving trees and other natural resources that cannot be easily replaced. Using stencils and spray-paint, the team created a stylized design inspired by graffiti and street art. The team stenciled its message onto four containers, whose mobility effectively spread this message throughout New York City.
