PHOTOS: New Contactless Trash Cans Debut in World Showcase at EPCOT
Following its brief closure in the spring of last year, Walt Disney World reopened in July with several COVID-19 health and safety precautions. These included propping open the lids of trash cans so guests wouldn’t have to touch them. As the COVID-19 precautions were rolled back, trash can lids were no longer propped open. Now, new trash cans without these flap lids have popped up in World Showcase at EPCOT.
The open spaces on these trash cans are slightly smaller, so the trash is less likely to fall out.
Without lids, guests still don’t have to touch anything to throw away their trash.
We saw two of these trash cans, but more will probably be rolled out soon.
Hopefully, these will keep hands cleaner and maybe save some cleaning time for custodial cast members since the trash can lids could get quite dirty.
