The new downtown trash bins are set to dispense a $5 bill when the trash inside reaches a randomly selected weight.

After each emptying by city employees, the dispensing weight is automatically reset.

       A hobo places one foot in the bin, gradually transfers weight to that foot until cash appears, then repeats with next bin.   

       Or, if the opening of the bin won't let in a leg, someone turns up with a rigid stick of some sort that can be lent on with the same effect.

       Or they'll collect rocks and throw them in until the $ comes out. My god, this is a lousy idea.

       Dispense coupons good for one item at the downtown "Look what We Found in the Trash" STORE.   

       Yesterday I set out a Full size Rooster doll with plastic feet by the dumpster. The filthy dirty thing was gone in an hour.   

       A bag of aluminum cans can be found in many a dumpster.
