This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I like a bit of variety when building community lots, even for the trash cans. The original ones by Maxis are fine for a nice upscale community, but what if your building some city lots or abandoned lots? Those nice looking wood ones don't exactly fit all neighborhoods. The mesh is from TS3, it comes in two colors. I labeled them as clean/dirty, but it's more fresh paint and peeling paint. Both are green, but feel free to recolor to fit your abandoned or city hoods. Can be found in General/Misc for §75.

They sit slightly to the back side in one tile, the same as the original trash can I cloned. I left it like this due to route/container/sim animations. While this is uploaded to Community Lot Only, it is available on residential lots just for fun.

This is very cool HL, thanks! You know just today I was thinking of doing a default replacement residential trashcan that looks like a recycle bin.

Argh! I'm going to have to download these. And when someone recolors them w/graffiti, I'm going to have to download the recolors. Custom content is a curse!

Thanks for sharing, HL. These are going to look great on my urban community lots.

There is a default replacement found here:

And yes, it's a parallel work. Not using HugeLunatic's conversion.

I'm glad you made these for residential because I have some apartments they'll be perfect for.

Cool, it'll go great in my low-wealth and urban 'hoods.

HL, I have enjoyed all your creations for my game and this one is no exception! They each add something to the game that otherwise would have been sorely missed! Thank you for sharing!!

These are great. Thank you. It was much needed since the base game only gave us receptacles suited for parks. I hope someone works on one that you would find in food courts and fast food places. I always appreciate having decorative choices suited for different lots and 'hoods.
