High-availability, High-reliability Trash Can

We spotted this upgrade on a recent trip to a Powerhouse Theater production:

Vassar Old Main - High-availability Trash Can
Vassar Old Main – High-availability Trash Can

Compared with the older version, I’d say it’s a great improvement:

Vassar Old Main - Broken Trash Can 1
Vassar Old Main – Broken Trash Can 1

Who says things never get better?

  1. Now to find the dump where all those lovely solar cells, motors, batteries, and controllers ended up. Granted, the batteries are probably duff, but the rest of the bits could be useful.

    1. Maybe they’re cannibalizing the deaders to keep the others alive, warranty period be damned?

  2. The city of Antwerp is currently proudly replacing ye olde trashcans with compacting trashcans (six times the capacity) that give the trash collectors a whistle when they’re (almost?) full. I hope they won’t suffer the same fate in a few years…
