In the proud Halifax tradition of “neglected things that have turned into garbage cans,” this former base of a streetlight on Cogswell has turned into a garbage can. 

In the proud Halifax tradition of “neglected things that have turned into garbage cans,” this former base of a streetlight on Cogswell has turned into a garbage can.


Remarks: Haligonians have proven time and again that, when given an empty receptacle, we’re more than able to fill it with garbage. Regardless of shape, regardless of depth—give us an empty three-dimensional cube or cylinder and by god, we’ll find a way to put a coffee cup in it. Or a banana peel. Or a soiled napkin. It’s not that we’re against using legitimate garbage cans—but in their absence, we’ll improvise. Like this. Yucky.


Who's Responsible?: Mike Filippone, HRM’s traffic signal supervisor and general streetlight guru. 490-4788.
