Dustbins of History: The Container Store's receptacles.  

There’s one problem with these bright “day-dreamer” wastebaskets from the Container Store (629 Sixth Ave., near 19th St.; 800-786-7315): Can you even bring yourself to defile them with biohazardous tissues from your winter cold? Well, that’s what they’re made for, and they’re just $11.99, so go ahead and toss. In three colors, including an orange Marimekko-ish flower-power pattern that will brighten any corner.
