London has finally rolled out the bomb-proof garbage cans touted earlier this year. Up to now, public fear over trashcans being used as potential sites for terrorism has led to an absence of garbage receptacles on city streets and in subways.

The bomb-proof trashcans are the creation of London-based company Media Metrica, who also has plans to roll these garbage cans out on Wall Street. The technologically-advanced trashcans feature LCD screens that display constantly-updated news and travel information for passersby. Stats for Bomb-Proof Garbage Cans Trending: Older & Chilly
