Recycling Racks for the Homeless

Category: Urban Planning

recyclerack.jpgVictoria, BC: Although it's unfortunate that most cities have folks down on their luck who need to rummage through the trash to get cans and bottles for money, we might as well make their lives a little easier. This brilliant and simple innovation puts a little rack on public trashcans where people can stick empty beverage containers, saving scavengers the trouble and health risks of digging around. It also makes recycling more likely, and probably keeps the city cleaner.

Thanks Darren.

Tiny detail, but it's actually Vancouver, not Victoria. Thanks for the linkage.
