"Best Before" Study of Garbage

This is going to make some planner's day. "BEST BEFORE is an evolving project about the relationship between individual and object. Plastic bags have been placed on the doorsteps of homes throughout the New York City area, and individuals have contributed their 'expired' items, documented here as excerpts of small pasts in material form. This is the online archive of items donated to the BEST BEFORE project between August and October, 2006."

If you are into this kind of stuff, check out Rubbish: The Archaelogy of Garbage book written by the same people who ran The Garbage Project in the 1970s.
