A new batch of trash cans will soon be popping up on the street corners and other litter-prone locations across Eagle Rock. In addition to collecting trash, the cans will also help promote Eagle Rock and the Eagle Rock Neighborhood Council, which will be paying part of the cost, with logos painted on the side of the containers. Now, the council is asking the public for help to decide which of four logos will be slapped on those cans.
The final design still has to be worked out but four preliminary logos, pictured above, can be viewed more closely by clicking and viewing this a PDF. During a recent meeting, the logo that seemed to win the most support was the one at bottom left, according to council member David Greene. That logo “uses the hand-drawn type from the 1920s banner we’re eventually going to put up on lightpoles around town,” said Greene.
Eagle Rockers, or anyone with a deep interest in trash can logos, can indicate their preference by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org by Feb 12, Greene said.
One part of the logo will not be up for a vote, however. The name of Councilman Jose Huizar, whose office is also helping defray the cost of the containers, must all appear on the trash cans.
