In the garbage bin, looks like he's found something neat

Another picture from Poland. I was very impressed with this trashcan I saw. The lid to keep out rain is fixed in place. The can beneath it rotates. You could cant the can slightly to throw some trash in, or rotate it more for more access or to empty it. I think that is a good design. Compare that to an open can (that would let in the rain) or a slot (that wouldn't offer as much access to the can) or a door (kind of a dirty thing that you would have to touch with your hands).

On the other hand, back in the USA, I think the design of this KCRW public radio envelope is terrible. It's an appeal for money that says, "Please throw me in the trash!"
