Trash Can Panel Advertising Available

The BSBPA offers this great outdoor advertising opportunity to its members.

Trash Can Panels:

Contacts: Stacy Simmons ( or Ellen Mottola (

Closing dates: June 16, 2017

The BSBPA, along with the Village of Ballston Spa, will be purchasing another 2 additional 60-gallon plastic trash receptacles to replace old and failing wood units in the business district.  This style receptacle is used in many stadiums, airports, universities and small towns and we have used them for several years with great success. As you can see by looking at some of the units around town, not only are they attractive and durable, but they offer our members the opportunity for sidewalk advertising, much like a sandwich board, or advertising in a location away from their business to attract or direct people to their establishment. For some businesses, these trash receptacles panels can be used in place of traditional sandwich boards without the hassle of having to put signs out and bring them in each day. In some areas, this will free up valuable sidewalk space while still allowing businesses to advertise to the street and pedestrian traffic. The addition of another two new cans opens up the availability of eight advertising panels. Additionally, there are limited spaces available on existing receptacles already placed in town.

Note: You do not need to be a business located within the Downtown Village to advertise successfully on the trash receptacles!

There will be a one-time charge of $125.00 to secure a spot on a receptacle and to have the art work you supply for your ad produced. We can provide the specs for panel artwork for you or your designer to use.  T-Shirt Graphics, who produces our panels, can also provide design services, should you need them, which you would be billed for separately. Each year, you will be billed a $25.00 maintenance fee with your annual dues, which will cover replacement in case of any damage to that receptacle or your ad display. If you choose to change or update the artwork for your ad after the initial printing, there will be a $50.00 fee for the new panel. Remember, you must be a BSBPA member in good standing to have a trash can panel.

We will do our best to accommodate requests for placement of your boards on requested trash receptacles, but locations will be on a first come, first serve basis. If a business does request a location outside of another business member’s storefront, the storefront business will have right of first refusal for that location.

As with the current trash receptacles, the Village DPW will empty them weekly or when they become filled and provide the plastic bags and winter storage. Our receptacles are traditionally placed out in April and taken in after the Holiday Parade so as not to interfere with snow removal.
