Sharpener Container / Stationary Design

Sharpener Container
Sharpener Container

The shaving catcher container for the pencil sharpener needs to be cleaned periodically. The usual procedure is to pull the whole thing out and dump the shaving into garbage can. However, when the container is pulled out, some shavings inevitably fall off the roller blade and make a mess. So the next thing is taking the whole thing to the garbage can, pull the container out with one hand while holding the pencil sharpener with the other. Unfortunately sometimes one of the hand slips and one or both parts may fall straight into the trash.
