Note: This procedure requires editing a game file; creating a backup copy of the file before proceeding is recommended. Find the lot in a neighborhood that is missing the mailbox and outside trash can (for example, Lot 1 of Neighborhood 2) and another lot that has a mailbox and trash can in another neighborhood with the same lot number (for example, Lot 1 of Neighborhood 3). Open the "userdata" folder of the Neighborhood that contains the good lot (for example, "userdata3"). Open the "houses" folder and right click on the housefile of the good house (for exmaple, "house01.iff") and select "Copy". Then, go into the house folder of the bad lot (for example, "userdata2"), right click, and select "Paste". Answer "Yes" if asked if you want to copy over the old file. Start the game and the mailbox and trashcan should be replaced. Note: This will copy over any House on the problem lot.
