Recycled Art Contest


The annual Nevada Recycled Art Contest works to encourage community members to repurpose recyclable materials to make art. While recycling is good, reducing and reusing are even better ways to manage waste. Creativity can help reduce the amount of waste that is sent to the landfill, which is why every year during October we accept submissions from artists all over Nevada to see the many creative ways you can make art from trash.
