Trash Dragon Public Build

March 19, 2017 @ 2:00 pm

Help us build a mythical creature of litter intolerance!

Trash Dragon Public Build Workshop on March 19th from 2-3:30

Anyone age ten and up is welcome.

Location: Castagna Learning Center at The Lancaster Science Factory

The Science Factory was awarded a grant from Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful to construct a trike bike and cart that will be completely decorated with trash/recyclable materials to look like a dragon. Aluminum cans are being used to create scales. Colorful bags, plastic bottles, and even old keys are being incorporated in the design.

This mobile scupture will be available for community clean ups to beautify our neighborhoods. The Trash Dragon will incorporate trash and recycling receptacles to help with the clean-up itself. We hope it will prevent future littering by fostering a sense of community pride and responsibility. Its unique design will appeal to children and make cleaning up FUN.

Feeling creative? Join our public build! Use your hands and your artistic skills to transform recyclables into the dragon itself. Students age 10 and up and their families are encouraged to attend.


Together, we can raise awareness, and encourage recycling and responsible waste disposal!
