Receptacle placement


Consider this momentary snapshot in terms of the larger process, and what had to be noticed/reported (and by/to whom) before this new trashcan is placed.

Before: The “requisite” (as in, “beyond acceptable/sufficiently noticeable/embarrassing) amount of litter observed by a sufficiently concerned person of sufficient influence reported to the “right” municipal bureau.

After: Notifying of the neighborhood’s municipal waste collection staff of the need to monitor and manage these new trashcans. The discovery of these new trashcans by the neighborhood’s informal recyclable collectors who will modify their daily route to check these new receptacles for plastic bottles and other resellable materials.

Consider how this process could potentially be simplified. In whose interest it is that it is this complicated, and who would benefit from its simplification?receptacle_placement_2
