This is the twenty-second puzzle you will encounter in Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box. To access this puzzle, you must examine the rubbish. In order to solve this puzzle, you must move the blocks around to place the garbage in the trash can.

[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Give this method of starting the puzzle a shot.

    Stack the four blue blocks on top of each other, with the first one at the bottom of the trash can.

    Next, find a way to get one of those four blocks into the little indentation in the upper-right corner. Once it's in place, you'll never have to move that block again!

Hint Two
    Here's a helpful hint.

    If you're feeling stumped, place a blue block in the uppermost, lowermost, and rightmost areas of the puzzle. Then try moving the other blocks around in the remaining space.

Hint Three
    Removing the blue block at the bottom of the trash can will be your second-to-last move.
