To make things more convenient for cyclists, in Denmark they have these tilted trash cans next to bike paths:
If we zoom in and lighten the photo, we can get a better look at the mounting bracket:
I was surprised to see the nut; I'd thought there might be a tool-less locking handle there, so that the city workers could lower the can for emptying, but I suppose there are cost constraints.
Giving it further thought, I guess the container can never get truly full. And while this is great UX for cyclists, it might be inconvenient for the workers to empty, as they either have to carry a wrench or empty the can at an angle.
Hmm--since they're already using existing cans, might it have been better to leave the can flat, and add some sort of directional lid? Or is this the best (or easiest, or cheapest, or quickest) way to achieve this result?
