We all want our homes to be as beautiful as they can be: well-designed furniture, perfect lighting, and just the right bathroom fixtures. But there’s often one very conspicuous eyesore you overlook: the rows of beaten-up, messy garbage cans lining the building front. They stink in the summer and help create trash-strewn snowbanks in the winter--and they always look downright terrible. 

Trash in the City

Citibin is an innovative and sleek trash enclosure that beautifies a property by obscuring and containing garbage cans and recycling bins. Made of recycled bamboo composite and extruded aluminum, CitiBin is durable (there’s a 10-year warranty) and aesthetically fits into any New York neighborhood.

CitiBin was designed by Liz Picarazzi after she looked high and low to find a trash enclosure that suited her own tastes. Her creation was such a smash among her neighbors she decided to make a business of it. CitiBins have been installed throughout the city and the company was recently featured in Dwell and The New York Times Real Estate section. CitiBin is patent- and trademark-pending.

The CitiBin is modular so it fits into most building set-ups and can be expanded as needed. They’re built with front and top doors for throwing the trash in during the week, and sliding it out on pick-up days.

CitiBin Spotlight: Customer Stories

  • Tony in Prospect Heights replaced his condo's warped, cracked, wooden trash enclosure with a CitiBin. Their previous enclosure fell apart in less than 3 years, so the 10-year CitiBin warranty was a major selling point.
  • Alan on the Upper East Side realized his dirty trash cans were diminishing the curb appeal of his otherwise lovely brownstone. CitiBin concealed the eyesore and its built-in planters greened their stoop.
  • A property management company was spending so much on Department of Sanitation violations that it’s purchasing CitiBins to corral and separate trash from recyclables for several  buildings.
  • Cecilia in Park Slope chose CitiBin to keep strollers outside rather than cluttering her entryway.
  • Trash and recycling cans had overtaken the courtyard of a 30-apartment coop in the West Village. CitiBin concealed the unsightly trash and recyclables, and the courtyard was transformed into a beautiful leisure space.
