The Trash Bin Sculptures of El Chalten

Trashbin, El Chalten, Argentina, February 2013

El Chalten, Argentina, is best known as a gateway for excellent hiking and trekking in the mountains near the iconic Mt. Fitz Roy, but it’ll also stand out –in my mind anyway– as the home to the finest assortment of trash bin sculptures on the planet. A typical example above, stands in front of a call center.

I was told by one townsperson that the sculptures were created by a local mountain guide and spread around town.  I don’t know his name – my apologies. If anyone knows, or is on their way to Chalten and can find out, I’d love to hear from you.

    • Some do. Many don’t. I’m getting tired of seeing so much plastic everywhere.
