CITIBIN was created by Liz Picarazzi, who could not find a durable and attractive enclosure for her own trash. She didn't like the plastic, wood, and metal trash sheds on the market, so she created her own. Her trash enclosure was such a hit in her community that she made CITIBIN a sister business of her handyman company, Checklist Home Services. In previous lives, Liz was a marketing executive at American Express and an election monitor in Russia and Ukraine. Liz likes to make and start things, and play with her daughter, husband, and 2 cats.
Liz has grown CITIBIN from a small local company making custom trash sheds to a national brand that designs and manufactures a wide variety of outdoor storage solutions. Her most recent invention is PARCELBIN, a package delivery locker that stops porch pirates in their tracks.
Liz is excited to use the CITIBIN blog as a platform to discuss topics she is passionate about: entrepreneurship, innovation, leadership, and the value of trade education.
