NYC Dumpster Pools Make a Splash

Pools are short in supply in NYC, so Macro Sea set out to add more with their ingenious Dumpster Pools. Commissioned by the city, Macro Sea built three pools out of repurposed trash receptacles for residents and visitors to splash around in. The mobile pools were elevated off the ground and feature a generous pool deck on which to catch some rays. There’s no word when they’ll be back, but we’ve got our fingers crossed and a swimsuit in our bag just in case.

Pool Box is a Refined Recycled Dumpster Backyard Pool

New Orleans-based architect Stefan Beese took a more refined approach to dumpster pools by turning his trash dump into a wood-clad dream. His Pool Box is made from a 22×7 ft steel refuse container, which was lined with protective foam insulation and clad in pine wood slats. This little lap pool is the perfect addition to any backyard.
