wouldn't this be a collection by type?
Whoa, that sounds very complicated. This photo was taken while we were travelling, so I have absolutely no idea how Denmark regulates their rubbish removal.wouldn't this be a collection by type?
we also have 3 types of bags: "PMD" for plastics, metals (household) and bricks for liquids, "greens" from the garden and "everything else". The "PMD" bag, being a lot less expensive than the "everything else" bag, is typically transparent, allowing a visual check.
In some cities, the "everything else" goes into containers as well. These are weighed and registered as they are emptied in the garbage truck.
The regulation stipulates that the bags can only be put outside after 19:00 on the evening before the collecting. Which means of course that they will remain outside in some streets till the truck passes at the end of the next day.
You're quite right, Walter. When you want the French to do something, you have a hard job. But if it's forbidden you can be sure that everyone does it. If they see e. g. a sign that swimming is forbidden at a small lake or pond you can be sure that there are loads of swimmers, air mattrasses and boats in it. That's their way of dealing with authorities.Prohibitions usually have the opposite effect than what is intended. Human nature is complicated, we are not prepared for ourselves.
