These playful floor stickers made me chuckle. It’s an initiative by the city of Lucerne (Switzerland) to get people to notice and use garbage cans. What a fun idea! Hat tip!

  1. ooh hopscotch ! love this. and the basketball one that EightyOne shared above, so cool.

  2. So much fun. Hopscotch and basketball take the biscuit.

  3. Creative way to use garbage cans, i already hear parents saying “how often did i told you not to play at the garbage cans!”.Nice!

  4. Here’s the Dutch version:
    Basketball net meets trashcan. They’re usually placed at crossings, next to the traffic light.

  5. OR they can be like korea and not have trash cans anywhere, so people are constantly looking for one..

  9. Hahaha, I love it. Anything that injects a bit of fun and spontaneity into the daily routine is a good thing, as far as I am concerned. Guy Debord and the rest of the Situationists would be proud; “Live without dead time,” wasn’t it?
