After showing how Texans deal with their garbage, I thought it would be fun to show how my apartment building in Switzerland has recently tackled the challenge.
Until a few weeks ago, there were huge containers that we’d throw our garbage bags into:
They were smelly, took up a lot of space, and were an eyesore. It was also a lot of work for the garbage collectors to tip every container into their truck, and to clean up afterwards.
That was a few weeks ago, and this is today:
The garbage is contained in an enormous underground bag. With a key, you can open the lid and toss in your bags.
Now there are no more smells, no more eyesores, and just a single garbage collector can do the job that previously took three – and do it much faster and cleaner! It is emptied by a single operator using a remote controlled crane.
