We never thought dumpsters could be cute, but here we are. The quirkiest desktop accessory around, Dumpsty Jr., is on sale just in time to commemorate another dumpster fire of a year. Cheers.

Dumpsty Jr. is, quite literally, a dumpster for your desk. It’s a teeny tiny replica of an actual dumpster, standing at just 5 x 3.5 x 4 inches, and complete with detailed hinges and a working lid. It’s made from raw steel and even has traditional angled fork pockets and bottom skids. The tiny trash bin comes fully assembled with three sets of lids in black, baby blue, and yellow — along with a pair of mini dumpster warning sign magnets.

It’s not just a novelty, though. You can actually use Dumpsty Jr. to store pens, markers, rulers, notepads, and other small items. Or maybe use it as a phone holder while you work. Add some electric candles and house your very own dumpster (without the mess). Heck, you could even throw your tiny paper trash in it to really make it feel genuine.

While it may be a symbol of trash, it actually tidies things up on your desk. And thanks to its tough steel construction, this tiny dumpster can handle practically anything you throw at it (or in it). Decorate it with your own stickers, add some graffiti for a personal touch, or leave it in its purest dumpster form. Regardless of what you choose to do with it, it’s sure to be a conversation starter, no matter where you work. The possibilities are endless.

If you want a dedicated dumpster for your desk, or want to give the ultimate gag gift that’s also pretty useful, Dumpsty Jr. is on sale for a limited time. It’s usually $99, but you can grab it on sale for just $74.99 in traditional green, gray, or blue.
