Pilot commercial trash/recycling receptacles on street 3.67/5 (3)

I’d like to pilot stable on-street (curbside) trash and recycling receptacles that would hold the bags of commercial trash and recycling that usually sit on the sidewalk on trash day. This could be piloted on any commercial strip in the district (e.g., 5th Avenue). The large bins would hold the refuse in a parking spot rather than forcing pedestrians to walk around piles of trash bags. This kind of system is already in place (at least for recycling) in places like Spain – https://ttmadrid.com/blog/secrets-recycle-like-pro-spain/ – and could help make the streets friendlier (less smells, spills, rats, etc).
