New York City is home to more than 23,250 public street little baskets offer pedestrians
convenient way to dispose of refuse and recyclables on the go. The most widespread design—the wire-mesh basket—is affordable, easy to service and has remained largely unchanged since the 1930s.
While basket refuse accounts for less than 2% of the City’s waste, the presence of a litter basket on highly-trafficked corner helps shape behaviors around waste in general.
