The table of trash: a periodic table of everything you’ll find in a New York Bin

Rubbish on your wall for a mere £30.74

Thought your city streets threw up some fairly revolting finds? If you live in New York, at least you know exactly what that is. NYC-based writer Molly Young and designer Teddy Blanks have created the Table of Trash, an H to PX periodic table of everything that gets chucked and doesn’t hit the bin. Cleverly divided into categories like food, household and vices, a lot of it is relatable (plastic bag, cigarette butt) but some (canister of poison?!) we’ve personally never come across. Thankfully. They’re actually selling it, too; rubbish on your wall for a mere £30.74.
