My new Recycling Lot in the Modular Building style. It is based on the containers of the 4206 Recycling Truck.

I really like this - what a great idea!  I particularly like (well, you know what I mean!) the rubbish that's been dumped...how often have we all seen that?!  I like the lowered pavement too.

Lovely build, this looks great! :thumbup:
I think it would look even better with "dirtier" roofs(?) on the containers. :sweet:

Hey this is a very clever idea! Well done! I also like the difference in height that you created on the sidewalk.

Very nice! The damaged wall and the garbage adds just that perfect amount of detail. I really like the idea of raising the pavement by one plate, I might nick that idea off you :)

Thanks for the all compliments.  :classic:

I raised the pavement with one plate so I could use tiles for a bicycle path on regular road plates.

A simple, but effective idea! And very nicely executed. By the way, I'm glad we don't have these in the neighbourhood where I live, I'd have to walk a lot more. :laugh:

That's an nice MOC. I mostly like how you created a slightly rased pavement, it's how they are in real life. Also, the recycling lot area is interesting with some graffitti and a 'dump' area behind the broken wall.

This is a great little build.  I especially love the dumped washing machine - nice touch! :)

Nice design on your MOC.  I never would have considered a modular so small, but it works very well!   :thumbup:

Your Lego will be assimilated with mine.  Resistance is futile!

It's a clever and neat idea - cities often have these blank spaces between buildings for some sort of community utility, why shouldn't LEGO-cities have them?

On that note; Would you mind if I borrowed your idea?
