Despite the name, Trashy is a seemingly expensive solution to the problem of how to sort your garbage and recyclables. It's so well designed that we're inclined to overlook the whopping price tag (an unpainted version is $225, while the one you see here is $875) and the somewhat disturbing fact that apparently we now live in a era where garbage cans, like cars, come with standard features and options...
For example, a custom paint job will set you back $60 (no word on whether you can get flames) and a chrome exhaust tip -- er, towel bar -- runs $38.
Nonetheless, there are some great ideas here. There's literally a place for everything we have to get rid of these days: landfill trash; compostables; recyclables; and hazardous waste. It's substantial and sturdy, so you can use it as a kitchen island. Instead of lifting up, the entire top slides, so you can access the compost and recycling bins without disturbing what's on the surface.
The price is beginning to look a bit more reasonable now that we know Trashy is actually a small kitchen island that solves a real problem of what to do with your recyclables.
Check out the Trashy website. And don't worry: it's totally safe for work.
