Interesting garbage bin

We saw this rather interesting "wheely bin" opposite the Court House restaurant at Cleveland a while back.

  2. seemes to be tha same type of bin all over the world nowadays. Just saw the same in Chile. I Sweden there are different posters just made to put on them, like flowers, bushes. Interesting (how can an ugly bin be that ;-)?)

  3. That would catch anyone's attention, wouldn't it?

  4. I agree they are not the most beautiful of items, but putting posters on them only increased their ugliness and makes the visual environment even more cluttered.

  7. Interesting indeed, we have this kind of bins also in our city but I think our admins should think also of this eye catching strategy to have all their garbage shot here and not anywhere else...

    Thanks for dropping by

    Surely you can do better than that bin "photo" - even the horse looked uncomfortable with being photographed!

    The subject will be raised on Thursday, if we are not washed away with this rain!

  11. Am I missing the horsey message? Or is the photo just supposed to make you notice the bin and drop your trash in it?

  12. It's a great idea, I'm thinking about painting mine to match my garden now!

    had a photo of a bin in Auckland with the words "Human Body Parts Only" emblazoned on it. I must say, I prefer the horse...
