The Original Desktop Dumpster

Dumpsty desktop dumpsters are ready for anything you want to throw at them… in them… or on them. Measuring a broad eleven inches across (the perfect size for magazines), and handmade from steel, they’re authentic recreations of their full-sized counterparts. Dumpsty dumpsters are available in stock finishes of raw galvanized steel and glossy blue or green paint, special limited edition colors, and out-of-sight artist editions. We can even design them to order.

Dumpsty combines gritty realism, solid metal construction, and incredible attention to detail. From the fork pockets to the tiny molded text on the rubber lids and warning signage; everything has been meticulously recreated down to the last detail.

At eleven inches wide and ten inches tall, Dumpsty is just the right size for your desktop, workbench, or table.

Functional Design

Measuring a broad eleven inches across and ten inches tall, Dumpsty is the perfect size for magazines, studio supplies, tools, and personal treasures.

Dual Hinged Lids

Independent rubber lids are available in assorted colors and held in place by the same rugged dog-ear hinge design found in full-sized dumpsters.

Interchangeable Casters

Custom casters designed for Dumpsty use a double bearing design and super-soft polyurethane wheels for ultra-smooth motion.

Tough Metal Construction

Dumpsty is solid – made by hand using heavy-duty recycled steel. Dumpsty can take whatever you throw at it, in it, or on it – and look all the better for it.

Dumpsty Blanks


Stock Dumpsty blanks are available in raw galvanized steel or glossy blue or green paint. Every blank Dumpsty comes with a set of miniature warning sign magnets and a pair of black lids.

Note: due to the nature of unpainted steel, raw Dumpsty dumpsters will have variations in surface color and small areas of rust that will not affect the integrity of the metal.
