Observed: Carrum silva

An alternate to the Common Bin (carrum communis) the Central Park Conservancy bin by Landor was recently sighted at the Cooper-Hewitt.

Observers have provisionally classified these specimens as Carrum silva in celebration of their verdant Central Park habitat. Not as functional or as useful as its cousin the Common Bin, 1this observer has heard firsthand how hard it is to clean and maintain these bins nevertheless C. silva has a distinct shape and design which for some observers has elevated its form over the function. 2Citation needed.
