TetraBIN Let’s You Play Games with Trash

TetraBIN Let’s You Play Games with Trash
Litter sucks. It makes cities look ugly, and can be a public health hazard. Sometimes bins overflow, sometimes they’re hard to find, and sometimes people just don’t care what they do with their trash. Whatever the reason, litter sucks.

Volvo ROAR Project Takes out the Trash

Volvo ROAR Project Takes out the Trash
Volvo is working on a slick autonomous vehicle project with a Swedish refuse company that is aiming to automate the task of picking up your trash and taking it to the truck for dumping.

Borderlands Claptrap Trash Can: Please Don’t Shoot It!

Borderlands Claptrap Trash Can: Please Don’t Shoot It!

Pfandring Makes Recycling Bottles Easier and More Appealing
I try to avoid driving on roads which still show evidence of some wild party that probably went on the night before: discarded plastic bags, crushed plastic cups, and shards of glass from broken bottles all around.

R2-D2 Garbage Can Too Nice for Trash

R2-D2 Garbage Can Too Nice for Trash
I hate taking out the trash. I like to wait until the bag in the can is so crushed down that getting the bag out in one piece is an impossibility. Then I can just dump the can in the big can outside and then the trash guys mess with the thing.

Gaon Street Light/Wastebasket Turns Trash Into Flash

Gomibako for PS3: Like Tetris With Trash

Gomibako for PS3: Like Tetris With Trash
I love my PS3, and I love a good game of Tetris, but unlike Oscar the Grouch, I don’t know if I can say that I love trash. Still, this offbeat new game in the works combines all three into a single, juicy delicious morsel of gaming that could be the most addictive garbage collection game this side of Katamari Damacy.
