Since rubber garbage bins just don't seem to be doing the trick, designer Sylvie Fleury created this gold-plated trash can for all your garbage needs.

Costing from $10,000-$15,000, these limited edition garbage cans are made of tin and plated in gold sheets to add an extra bit of shine and shimmer to your garbage.

Sylvie Fleury has only made 25 of these limited edition trash cans.

Offering prestige in everyday items is a way to attract more buyers through elements of function and one-of-a-kind experiences. Companies could create practical products while keeping in mind the desire for an elite feeling in order to draw in more customers.
