Glassell Park trash can on the mend

DIY trash can repair/Photo by Laurie Avocado/Eastsider Flickr Pool

Sooner or later your city-issued trash and recycling bins will crack and break, leaving you to request and wait for a new plastic container.  But apparently a thrifty person who knows how to sew  took it upon themselves to repair a damaged black trash can in Glassell Park with an aqua-colored wire or thread.  Laurie Avocado caught sight of the DIY trash can repair and took a photo, which quickly found fans on Flickr photo groups devoted to images of L.A. Bureau of Sanitation equipment and  dumpsters and trash cans  (that’s probably a story in itself but we are going to stick to the trash can in question).

Perhaps the person responsible for this repair will now take up needle and thread and knit up a trash can cozy.
