Spotted: Celebratory Trash

(G)litter bin for the holiday season.

SPOTTED BY: Martin Reis

WHERE: Roncesvalles Avenue at Grenadier Road

WHEN: Sunday, November 25

WHAT: When Astral Media’s garbage bins started showing up on city streets back in 2009, residents began complaining quickly and in significant numbers. The pedals didn’t work well, or the backs flapped open, and they were covered in grime almost at once. They didn’t seem sturdy and they didn’t look good, was the general consensus. It’s the season for covering things with sparkles and glitter, and so at least one garbage bin in the west has gotten a bit of a holiday reprieve from those judgments.
