The. Best. Trash. Can. Ever.

trashanator_040613

The Community Compass art project delivered its latest creation to the schoolyard at St. Joseph’s A. McKay Elementary last week. Dubbed the Trashinator, it is a glittering and colourful sleeve that fits over the oil-barrel styled trash can at the school. Silk-screened shingles and re-purposed plastic lids and packaging make up the skin. Each element was designed and assembled by students and neighbours at workshops held at the school over the past month.

Trashinator, which sits on the Kaye Street side of the school, will soon be joined by a companion piece that will cover the school’s other outside garbage can.

Earl flips boxspring into road

The first rain bands from hurricane Earl are now cleaning out the gutters on Agricola Street, near West Street. Discarded furniture left out by departing tenants over the last week is now getting tossed around by the increasing winds.

This boxspring was the first to hit the roadway.
