No more warm street grids for sleeping in NYC, the “City That Cares.” Meanwhile in that city by the bay known now as San Shitfrisco, they’re looking to drop a ton of dough on keeping the homeless out of the garbage.
“They go looking for drugs. They go looking for things to recycle,” said resident Isaac Stevens. “In the neighborhood I live in, they bust them open. They pull things out, and sometimes they get too full.”
Sleeker designed bins with sensors alerting crews when they’re almost full will be more tamper-resistant, block rodents out and keep sidewalks cleaner.
Many, including Matt Haney with the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, think $20,000 for a trash can sounds ridiculous.
“It’s insane,” said Fred, a city resident.
The costly cans even flaunt designer names.
Finalist one is the Salt and Pepper; two: the Slim Silhouette; and three: the Soft Square. All featuring roll-out liners or toters that can be mechanically lifted instead of manually taken out.
