Designed to become a winter-y cigarette butt hedgehog

WDC is currently running a citywide campaign at all tramstops where we are told the “waste bins are designed for waste”.

Now, as we all know yours truly is a design genius, so this information didn’t surprise me. And I have a nagging suspection a lot of people weren’t shocked by this relevation.

But did you know that the same waste bins are also unintentionally designed to make a fantastic cigarette butt hedgehog in the winter months?

For some reason the snowy curved surface is very inviting to stubs. Much more so than the little container next to it that says “designed for ash”.

See? Even the tiniest hint of snow gets the stub treatment.

Could next year’s campaign perhaps highlight this rogue usage?
