Did you ever way to spray or mark up a dumpster? Did you ever want to dive into a dumpster to find a bag of half-eaten, un-stale bagels? Well, Steelplant has released a series of blank Frontloader Dumpsters available in four different colors: Shock Blue, Juice Green, Golden Yellow and Signal Red. There are also a handful of hand painted customs available, with other artist releases and more blanks in production.
The sculpture can be covered with your favorite paints, inks and stickers, or dilapidated in the same way an urban dumpster would be. Exposed steel can be scratched, scarred and rusted. Each dumpster will have some variation in the weld spray and grinding.
Each hand made eight pound dumpster comes packed in recyclable / compostable materials. 30% of our steel is recycled, and our lid tiles are milled from a composite wood plastic material made from what would otherwise be waste.
The blanks are available for $149.99 each, while the customs can be purchased for $250.00.
