Pouring trash into a bin by a dustpan is the last step in clean process. Users usually regard a dustpan and a broom as a set, and put them in an unnoticed place, such as in storage. However, the trash bin also plays an essential role in the clean process. What if these three tools could become a symbiotic relationship in a normal status when users do not use them. A corner of square column trash bin separated a room for a dustpan, and a dustpan separated a space for a folding broom. It not only enhances the efficiency, but also solves the problem what users do not know where the suitable place to leave a broom and a dustpan at their home.
