Rubbish

These carts and their drivers are what saves us from wading through a rubbish tip every day.

Ever tried to find a rubbish bin in London? Rare as hens teeth they are. Something to do with terrorists. We have these laws that put us all under suspicion of what I'm not sure. Councils however use these laws to see what we do with our rubbish.
You are encouraged to send photos of anyone you see littering, flytipping (that's colloquial for putting your rubbish in someone else's bin) and other such activities. Councils themselves have been known to clamber up ladders to keep an eye on the elderly in case an apple core or two makes into Joanna Smith's bin. An excellent use of anti terrorist law. We have plenty to fear from apple core vandals.
Discussion is also taking place about putting chips in our bins to analyse what we do with our waste. Did you put that council flyer in the recycle bin or did you burn it creating unnecessary co2 emissions.
Couldn't we just have a few more bins on the streets guys?

Agreed! I never know what to do with my trash in London. I guess it's best just not to generate any. We could use a few million more recycle bins in the USA!

That's a bit over the top big brotherish. Crazy.

Erh... England is starting to sound like 1984. It's getting closer to that England depicted in V for vendetta!
It's really hard to find bins in Japan, too. Since the 1995 Sarin gas attack in the Tokyo Metro they are rare commodity.

Wow! I had no idea. Thank goodness there are people who keep the streets clean! But I agree, a few more rubbish bins would make everyones lives a little easier. :)

Ah yes, more bins would come handy in London. Unfortunately the IRA had a habit of putting bombs in them...
