New York City gets rid of dumpster pools

They put a fresh spin on dumpster diving last summer, but this year, the city will not provide dumpster pools to the public.

While Summer Streets will return this year for three Saturdays in August, the dumpster pools are out.

Those pools were made out of lined trash bins.

This year, the city will offer communal sand boxes instead, along with free roller blade and bike rentals.
