Dumpster Swimming

WebUrbanist recently ran a fantastic piece on upcycled dumpsters and their wide array of uses. My personal favorite are these mini-swimming pools, which give a whole new meaning to the words "dumpster diving."  Funny enough, this isn't the only place you may have read about turning dumpsters into pools, the New York Times has also written about a new movement in the Northeast where people are turning huge storage dumpsters into pools and even holding swim parties in them.

There are other great uses for these little trash bins in the WebUrbanist post, including skateboarding ramps, a living room and an urban garden. Next time you see a dumpster, consider what  else it could be used for.
