Clever public garbage can with shelf for returnable bottles
Originally uploaded by morecoffeeplease.
Vancouver’s garbage cans now have a little shelf on the front, in which you can leave return-for-deposit bottles (the vast majority of drink containers in BC are deposit-return).
People used to just leave return-for-deposit bottles on the ground next to the garbage cans so other people could take them and return them — this is tidier. Also easier and less undignified for folks than digging through the bins.
