One of the qualities I most admire is the ability to take an object and make it into something. Even more admirable is a person who picks up trash in the street, the beaches and re-creates in Junk Art. Rodney ‘Rodrigo’ McCoubrey is just that person. I first ran across Rodrigo’s works in the Encinitas library and then the outside landscaped grounds are enhanced by his Trash Art. You can visit more of his Trash Art at Rodrigos Recycled Art
Almost every one of the items in this artistic landscaping can be found in the streets under the category of Litter. Litter costs each taxpayer thousands of dollars a year.
