    When were the first public litter/trash bins installed?


      I teach Introduction to Food Systems at the Culinary Institute of America in St. Helena, CA and talk about how the advent of single use and disposable food packaging led to a rise in consumer litter and trash. I am wondering when public trash/litter bins were first installed in the USA? I am particularly interested in when public trash can were installed in public places where people have picnics and eat food, like parks. Thank you.
