The ‘Safer By Design’ bin began as student research project and has become one of the first innovations from the UTS-based Designing Out Crime to be advanced to prototype production.
This new type of rubbish bin is on its way to making public places like train stations, ferry wharves, shopping centres, sporting and entertainment venues much safer and cleaner.
Tonight in Sydney's CBD a laneway will be transformed into a pop-up art gallery with more than 20 artists represented using several different mediums.
This project was made possible with funding by the City of Sydney and developed out of the Think St project from 2009's Winter School.
As part of the RailCorp customer charter for 2010, a new bin will be trialled at stations. Bins were removed from all rail platforms prior to the Sydney Olympic Games in 2000.
Designing Out Crime has collaborated with NSW Police and City Rail to devise a new safer bin which meets all the demands of both parties.
