From plastic bucket which was neither useful nor attractive became to the unique & convenient dustbin, from private barrel which just only for home use became to the public  garbage bin which can be seen everywhere in streets, from single barrel became to 2-compartments bin with recyclable & unrecyclable function divied.

Along with the development of an era,  classified trash bin is no longer for recyclable & unrecyclable garbage purpose only. As people in some cities, rows of colorful classified bins can be seen everywhere. These bins not only distinguish recyclable & unrecyclable garbage, but also detail classified for kitchen waste, hazardous waste and other garbage. Typically the bins for plastic waste and biological waste. In addition, the classified trash bin itself has a great propaganda function. For example, setting up battery recycling bins, to let people knows the toxic of waste batteries. From the biological waste bins, people recognize the leftovers lettuce is a valuable organic fertilizer……We had to say the classified trash bin gives garbage with the real sense of “return”.

An investigation named ” Does a beautiful trash bin much easier to draw your attention?” Investigation shows that, if the bin has exquisite appearance and unique shape, then it will be more for concern, and more likely to raise the probability of attracting people to put the trash into the bin. Perhaps designers have noticed above, All the trash on the street transformed into an artwork: People could always see different fonts and ingenious slogans on the mouth of the bin, and the colors are becoming more diverse, even the shapes, from cylindrical body become to  animal and fruit shapes. All these distinctive, beautiful and unique art appliances, seems to have become the most highlights of the street decorations. All these distinctive, beautiful and unique art appliances, seems to have become the most highlights of the street decorations.

To make trash bin more practical, designers have made efforts on  construction besides its appearance. We can see from the survey results, if trash bins are inconvenient to use, people would give up to drop litter even though they was meaning to do. This proves that the designers’ idea are make sense to increase the usefulness of the trash bin does lead people to a certain extent, more consciously to put litter into waste bin therefore it is not hard to understand in the survey questions of “what style of trash bin you would prefer”, there will be nearly 47% of people choose the automatic induction bin, 38.33% of people choose open-mouth trash bin, while the remaining 12% of people choose foot pedal bin.

From the analysis of structure, due to pedal bin needs user to step on the pedal everytime therefore it is inconvenient. And the open mouth bin, although without similar cumbersome devices, However, the single  and small open mouth makes it difficult to accurately put garbage into. In contrast, sensor bin is much more convenient to use: Every time when dropping garbage, people needn’t step on the pedal, and needn’t to bend down to lift the lid, just only need to be closer to the automatic induction then it will automatically open its mouth to let garbage into the large cast barrel, you needn’t worry about the question of garbage could be dropped into or not.

Changes from the trash bin allows us to see the deepening awareness of environmental protection, and let people aware their constant craving for clean and comfortable living environment and high quality of life.
