Photo Friday: Trash Cans Of The City Of Yarra

Okay, you’re right. They’re called “rubbish bins.” Old habits die hard.

The City of Yarra (local government of inner eastern and northern suburbs of Melbourne) took a bold step and decided that if you’re going to throw away your trash, it should at least be in a funny container.

I tried to research who was behind all of these quirky characters (no, that Kiwi isn’t painted on a rubbish bin!), but the results were inconclusive. I will make sure to update this post should any new information come to my attention. Weekend Notes wrote about the bins in 2014, suggesting that they aren’t new. I did notice that the bins I took photos of are very different now. They’ve upgraded.

Aside from being the face of the Swan Street rubbish bin, this pooch knows how to make a beautiful flat white.

Sometimes we all let fashion trends get the most of us. During my stint as an Uber driver, I once picked up a group of kids who referred to their friends’ beard as a “saggy vagina.” I couldn’t help but remember that conversation when I saw this.

Couldn’t help but only imagine when the Grinch tries yoga:

Because the logical answer to Mc2 is “put in bin, dickhead.”

There’s actually an entire hidden botanical garden inside.
