In Mexico, you don’t put your trash bins at the curb to be picked up. The garbage truck drives slowly down the street, honking its horn, and residents run out to put their own trash into it. The guys working the truck separate out some plastic bottles and cardboard by hand. I’m not sure where those go in the end. I’m not sure where any of it goes, actually.
Trash collection method is certainly different. I guess it works though. Interesting how different cultures have different ways of dealing with sanitation needs.
