Artists and recyclers have the opportunity to show their resourcefulness while challenging the way we look at waste with the 2019 Waste to Art exhibition.

The Sustainable Neighbourhood Alliance Secretary Steve Dewar, said the exhibition challenges the way the community looks at waste.

"The creations prompt us to explore local waste issues, consider how we might be contributing to the problem, and what we can do to move to a more sustainable future," Mr Dewar said.

"Waste and plastic pollution has an enormous impact on the local and global environment, and interrupting this through art can have a great impact from the community."

Sustainable Neighbourhoods is calling for individuals, schools and community groups to showcase their artistic ability and share their ideas about waste, litter and over-consumption through art. The artworks can be either sculptural, functional, or imagery based.

Registration is free via sustainableneighbourhoods.org.au and open to September 16.
