Well, yeah, that's because the scale leftover sheets from paper model kits you included in it were 4% inaccurate. Other than that it was great, the dumpster itself was 100% true to the prototype dumpster in your apartment's parking lot.
Maybe you should have modeled it just after the trash was picked up.

No, it was probably doing the hinges wrong. When the lid flipped to the back, it tore off the end one. Yeah, that is why I didn't make the cut. 4%? Hmmm, I better check size. Windows 98 is a bit shaky with precise drawings...
