NEW Contest 

The City of El Paso Environmental Services Department (ESD) is excited to announce its annual Earth Day Trash Bin Art Contest for residents 18 years and older that focuses on recycling. The contest allows contestants to show off their art skills on a unique canvas – a trash bin!

There is no fee to enter. Interested candidates must submit their artwork renderings and registration packet either via email (artwork must be a scanned PDF document) or deliver in-person (see info under Contest Guidelines).

The deadline for design submissions is Monday, February 26, 2018 by 5pm. Incomplete registration packets will not be considered.

ESD’s Earth Day Celebration committee will select a first, second, and third place winner and notify them by Friday, March 2, 2018. Candidates that are selected will be given a trash bin and art supplies to create their masterpiece. The winning bins will be on display at ESD’s Earth Day Celebration on Saturday, April 7, 2018.
