Scottsdale Dumpster Dive Scavenger Hunt


Art is everywhere in Old Town Scottsdale, including on trash bins. Find, snap and upload a selfie with three artist decorated bins to win prizes. 

Three new trash bins were designed by local artist Jon Arvizu and painted in collaboration with the community for Canal Convergence in November 2022. The artist-painted bins were put into service in February 2023 in Old Town Scottsdale.  

Dumpster Dive Art-painted Dumpsters

To participate in the contest, find all three trash bins, which are all in Old Town Scottsdale in the area bounded by Camelback Road, 75th Street, Osborn Road and Goldwater Boulevard.  Snap a selfie with each bin and upload it to our website to win prizes, then tag your photos on social media #ScottsdaleDumpsterDive for an extra entry into the prize drawing. 

All participants that find a bin and upload photos with all three will receive a water bottle sticker of these unique and functional works of art.  Participants will also be entered in weekly drawings for gift certificates to restaurants and businesses in Old Town Scottsdale
