Garbage Protection

East Villagers take garbage theft seriously. At this building on St. Mark's Place, they've gone to great lengths to protect their garbage:

Anti-theft garbage bins.

Even the recycling is protected:

Anti-theft recycling bins.

In case you can't figure out what I'm talking about, take a closer look.

A closer look.

I had the idea that maybe these were just decoys, meant only to deter theft, but those three holes drilled on the right side indicate that they're real. The superintendent drilled the holes there first, only to discover that the device needed to be on the left side. (This shot is from the garbage bin, not the recycling bin.)

Your garbage is safe in the East Village!
