Colorful barriers painted with butterflies, flowers and animals are preventing illegal dumping across DeKalb County.
Children spray paint and color in the barriers to brighten the previously blighted areas.
“These barriers are used to prevent dumping in key areas, and when they are bare, they look institutional,” said Gordon Burkette, program director of Keep DeKalb Beautiful, in a statement. “This hands-on project is designed to give young people the opportunity to improve how their own communities look through creativity.”
Since the program began last year, about two dozen barriers have been installed.
