Tri3 Trash Can Recycles Your Waste Stylishly

The Tri3 trashcan stacks three cans together to make recycling even easier than normal. It's also much neater, and more stylish, than my solution of throwing recyclables into a heap in the kitchen corner.

The top can, which also contains a bag dispenser, is for disposable goods. The middle can is for packaging and the bottom is for recyclables like bottles. Foot pedals open up different parts of the can. Stepping on the left pedal opens the top can, the middle paddle revolves the central can outward, and the right pedal turns the bottom can towards the user.

Unfortunately, it's just a concept for now. But I can't imagine why some entrepreneurial trash can manufacturer wouldn't pick it up in the near future. [Constance Guisset via The Design Blog]
