Container which is obviously not a trash can used as a trash can
Over the past few months, Fishtown residents created an unspoken agreement that certain plant containers, buckets, and barrels are now trash receptacles.
“I was going to plant a nice hydrangea in my decorative plant pot outside my house, but this is nice too.” says Front Street resident Mike Schumm. “A pile of garbage is definitely a close second.”
Littering enthusiast Jim Reynolds had the following to say:
“Usually I just throw my trash on the ground because I am an awful human being, but now I can just place it in containers that don’t belong to me, so they become a problem for someone else. I am really excited to have this alternative solution. Maybe I can place myself in one of these containers eventually.”
