On Trashcans design

It is interesting that Artemy Lebedev, wellknown in Russia web/graphical designer, devoted the whole paragraph of his online book to trashcans design issues (http://www.artlebedev.com/mandership/88/ ).

I found Paris's trash cans remarkably well designed.  They are a short cylinder on top of a metal pole set in the concrete.  A rubber strap is attached to the pole and the top of the trash bag is passed up through the bottom of the cylinder and folded over the outside and then secured with the rubber band.

It takes about five seconds to replace a full trash bag and the bags are clear so the workers can see from across the street if they need to be replaced

Here is a picture in action.
