The Green Garbage Can / Trash can

The Green Garbage Can
The Green Garbage Can

Public trash is outdoor essential public facility. Although it could collect various types of garbage, there are still some defects. The Green Garbage Can could collect residual water, and realize the recycle and reuse of the residual water. While persons discard water bottles, firstly they can pour the remaining water in the bottle into the storage bins above the mouth of the trash. Then water can flow from the lower outlet through a simple filter, which supplies the stray animals for drinking or passers for temporary cleaning. This recycle way greatly improves the reuse of the water, and it is eco-friendly.
