THE EVOLUTION OF TRASH RECEPTACLES


I’ve been thinking about garbage cans. Call me crazy. Anyway, we purchased a new one this week. It’s bigger than the previous one. And that one was bigger than the one before it.

I may be dating myself, but I remember when garbage cans were ALL round, metal, silver cans. The kind that dented when they were dropped, and made a lot of noise.

What do you suppose it says about our culture that the size of garbage cans continue to grow? Hmmm?

Just thinking.

And the number of self-storage units! We keep even more than we throw away, but we don't use it.
