At least it is neatly stacked in the right place. Until the cats tear into the bags.
Good luck with that.

That is troubling.

Welcome to smelly Livorno!

I agree with Dina. Better stacked here than strewn all across the town.

Always sad to see.

I guess whoever left the rubbish there have never ever heard about ZERO WASTE.... home .

Much of what is thrown out as garbage could be recycled, like cardboard, paper, plastic, etc. That would make the volume of real garbage quite small. Interesting, if unappealing photo.

This is awful. I was in Baltimore in the mid-70s when a garbage strike had been going on for several weeks...garbage and stench was everywhere! I hope this problem gets solved soon.
