The benches are made from recycled plastic. The company that makes them says each bench keeps 540 milk jugs out of a landfill.
Citizens can sponsor their own individual benches at $400 each, with a customized plaque included with the sponsorship. To sign up to sponsor a bench, please fill out a Sun Bench Sponsorship Form and submit it to City Hall with your payment of $400.
