Creatively using dumpsters in neighborhoods for different utilities and sports - a swimming pool, garden box, skate half-pipe, and ping-pong table.
Check out the great pictures at Scene 360 and Trixiny.

I saw this a while ago via www.coudal.com - it's always got fresh links to quality stuff (if you haven't already got it bookmarked) L

would they not rust a bit??? and would they not be a bit hard if you hit your head against one??? About the flash drive mod, just imagine it as a giant memmory card, thnk of the amount of 8Gb MICRO SD cards you could fit in a skip lol!!!

It looks like the one in the picture is filled with pond liner plastic or something similar. You could always slip pool noodles over the edges... Now who's going to make a wood-fired redneck hot tub out of a skip? Yes I'm allowed to say "skip", the one in the picture is clearly in England :P

It's only temporary, and yes steel hurts the head - but permanent swimming pools aren't soft either. L

Are they trying to throw away the water? :-)

Wow what next.... a dumpster flash drive mod?

yeah,9000000000000000005000 gigabytes!

that woulld be funny!

Yeah The biggest flash drive mod EVER!

bigger than the computer itself...unless its an old computer that takes up an entire room...but those don't have USB ports....it would still be funny either way.....

but what if it did....... EPICNESS!!!!

If you want a larger pool. some shipping containers are topless. 8 feet wide, 8 ft deep, and 40 feet long is a great lap pool.
