iCan is is a trashcan for OS X which sits on the desktop. It’s interactive – it appears empty when it’s empty, and full when it’s full, just like the one in OS 9.
You can drag to it, unmount disks with it, click it to open the trash folder, and it responds to the Finder’s command-delete.
If you like variation, you can switch to another trashcan, iCan is customizable using any of the included iCan Themes. If you wish to make your own themes, it’s easy, and instructions are provided. More info and download link here.
