The Polls Are Open: Vote now for your favorite Eagle Rock trash can logo

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 [email protected] 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.

  1. Please put some by Eagle Rock high. Those students litter all over the place!

  2. I hope the cans shown are not the ones being used. Those plastic garbage cans are super tacky. Buy some metal ones that will stand the test of time.

    • TF – these cans are replacing the rusty white metal wire baskets you see around Eagle Rock (and the rest of L.A.), most of which look like they’ve been crushed like beer cans by an angry giant. (If they haven’t been stolen for scrap metal.) I hear you about the plastic factor, but it’s tackier to have piles of garbage on the sidewalk, no?

  3. Update: The design on the lower left (Eagle Rock, California) won by a landslide! We’ll post updates at http://www.ernc.la when the cans arrive (eventually).
