Garbage platforms - São Paulo
These are garbage cans in residential neighborhoods in São Paulo. Yes, they are. You set your garbage bags on this basket/platform after 6 pm and the garbage men pass by during the night. I am guessing that this format is key here in Brazil for two reasons: 1. No one steals the cans. 2. No stray dogs can rip holes in bags and get the stuff. Okay, maybe one more reason: many more dumpster diver opportunities when it's all out in the open to look at! But maybe that's just me (a master-class dumpster diver).
