Friday Photo- A Thailand Rubbish Receptacle

Friday Photo 012

Dustbin, rubbish bin, garbage can, trash can, waste receptacle, whatever you want to call them, this is Thailand’s version. I have seen variations of this all over Thailand and South East Asia, and I know it’s very unsexy subject to talk about, but to me even small details like this make my adventures more interesting to me. (also a way of me rebelling against just posting photos of cocktails and tropical beaches etc)

This Thai trash can is ingenious little invention for a couple of reasons. Firstly it is made from recycled tyres, and secondly in it’s design. If you notice that the main thing is made from a huge tractor tyre that has been turned trimmed and inside out. The legs are made from what I believe to be motorbike tyres that have been cut in half.

Combining excellent design with recycling is displayed here in a fantastic way.

    That’s awesome! What a great solution to a couple different problems.nnI lived in China for three years and one thing that I loved about being there was that even mundane things (like trash cans, for example) were new and exciting. Just LIVING was an adventure. So thank you for sharing this and reminding me!

     First, it is made from recycled tires, and also in its design. If you notice that the main thing is made from a huge tractor tire that has been turned upside down and truncated. Thanks for your interesting article.
