Keeping in line with his predecessors, Baltimore’s newest trash wheel has assumed an honorific title with some authority.
A little over a year ago, Baltimore City spent almost $9 million on free trash cans for residents to fend off rats and collect more garbage. Today, the city’s Department of Public Works announced that very same trash can program received a “Project of the Year” award from a regional public works association.
Mr. Trash Wheel and Professor Trash Wheel are making waves all the way out on the West Coast thanks to their litter-gathering capabilities.
Mr. Trash Wheel will finally get a female companion on December 4, when Professor Trash Wheel starts spinning in Canton.
Baltimore’s favorite trash-eating machine has now swallowed up more than one million pounds of the city’s waste in just two-and-a-half years in existence.
