​BONNAROO WORKS FUND GRANT FUNDING RECYCLING BIN MURALS

Bryan Deese has been hard at work painting murals on Gallatin's recycling bins located at 641 Long Hollow Pk. Grant funding from Bonnaroo Works Fund is making possible a much needed facelift at Gallatin's recycling center. Having completed the first bin, the design has been approved and materials are being purchased for bin 2 of the 3 that Bryan intends to paint. An additional bin was purchased and is going to be painted by Gallatin High School students. This will be the second bin they have painted. Come check out his work and bring your recyclables!
