Garbage through the Hoop

Garbage through the Hoop, Piazza Cavour, Livorno
Our city-owned garbage collection company is nearly bankrupt, but still managed to spend some money for these silly trash bins: “rifiuti a canestro” means “garbage through the hoop”.

But they're cute. And people will take pictures of them. I don't think they'll hold a lot of trash, though, so will need to be emptied often. That could be a problem.

The bins here in Berlin always have funny messages on them. I rather like them here...

That whole garbage collection situation is strange, including the hoop.
