A multipurpose panel structure formed of a relatively thin resilient type material adaptable for use both as a container device and as a display sign, the panel structure comprising a relatively flat one-piece wall member having a cooperatively engageable interlocking arrangement associated therewith enabling the wall member to be formed into an open-ended closed wall structure capable of standing on end to form a container device, the cooperatively engageable interlocking arrangement being releasably detachable so as to enable the wall member to return to its normally flat condition for use as a display sign. The present wall member can be formed into a cylindrical shape, or it can be scored or otherwise weakened at various locations on its surface so as to form a multi-sided container structure. Any plurality of the present wall members may be connected together to form a multitude of container sizes and shapes. The container assemblies formed by the various embodiments of the panel structures disclosed herein are particularly adaptable for holding a wide variety of waste materials including recyclable materials.
