Lifeline Mid Coast has put a callout for an Indigenous artist to add to a growing list of vibrant and colourful charity bins on the north coast.
Bins in Forster, Port Macquarie and Kempsey have been brought to life by designs inspired by local culture and themes.
And now, it's Taree's turn.
Three bins in Butterworth car park, behind the Taree Lifeline store, are looking a bit dull and are in need of a makeover.
Marketing manager Lisa Willows said the idea was to reflect the Indigenous heritage of the area.
"The intention is to add a bit of culture to the area and it will add a piece of art to the community," Lisa said.
"We want to make the bins looks cool and funky."
All paint will be supplied and the artist will be paid for their work.
"The creation is entirely up to the artist, they can put whatever design they want on the bins," Lisa said.
The latest in the collection was through Adam Murray, who spruced up bins in Forster and Port Macquarie with beach inspired designs while an Indigenous theme was used in Kempsey.
"They've been well received," Lisa said.
She added the designs help deter damage and vandalism to the bins.
It is hoped all bins across the Mid Coast area will be painted.
Interested artists can contact Lisa at the Lifeline Mid Coast office on 6581 2800.
