blast containment recepticle
It's a garbage can, and a blast containment receptacle. Approximately 10,000 of these garbage cans have been installed in places like Logan Airport and O'Hare Airport and all along the Boston-New York Amtrak line. The idea is that terrorists may try to put a bomb in a trash can someday, but may not realize it's not a standard trash can. Bomb fragments will not come out the sides. The cans cost from $1,000 to $7,000, depending on the strength.
