Remember these in grade school? Every classroom had one in either black or dark grey and they were also dented like crazy. You can buy one for $45.

This is a great supplement to the book I’m reading right now called Picking Up: On the Streets and Behind the Trucks with the Sanitation Workers of New York City. I’ve been learning so much about the Department of Sanitation here in NYC and gaining such a profound appreciation for their job at hand.

CENTRAL-PARK-CONSERVANCY-RECEPTACLES

Great accolades for this Parsons-designed garbage can for the Central Park Conservancy. The trash can recently won the Gold Lion Award for Product Design at the Cannes Festival of Creativity. I like these a lot. If you want to see them, just take a walk through Central Park.
