There are four bins in this room: Sharps, clinical waste, domestic waste and, er, the other one that no one seems to use.  I should supply photos, I suppose, when I get home.
Getting there...

No photo, only a memory. There is a town in central Poland called Kielce, whose bus station is an odd shape like a flattened sphere with a roof made of concrete with circular, glass windows. Locals call it "the UFO". And in this bus station are bins shaped like penguins.

On North Weald airfield, next to the hangar in which they used to film "The Crystal Maze", is a mahoosive collection of wheelie and recycling bins.  Unfortunately I can't get a picture coz I'm doing 60 mph when I pass them.

This place ?  I can't see to get any closer to it, or find any bins however.
Actually, it is rocket science.

That's it. The bins are, or were, inside the bus station itself.

I didn't know streetview had arrived in Poland - I'll have to have a play! Haven't been to Kielce for many years, it looks more of a building site than I remember, but every bit as messy and dirty.  ::-)

I've always found the concept of litter bins something of an oxymoron.  Surely once you put rubbish in a bin it ceases to be litter, assuming it ever was...

Doubly so in the case of "Put litter in its place" signs.  That'll be the ground, then?   :facepalm:


(This is the sort of internal pedantry that I usually keep quiet about.  But this is a thread full of bin photos...)

A few minutes spare and a cameraphone, so I went chasing the bin in front of the Caird Hall. Tried lots of compositions but this was my favourite.

West Brom.  You even need to lock up your wheelie bins, it appears.

Found a delightful bench with not one but 3 bins!

Two were for dog poo (different colours?!1) and the other appeared to be Welsh.

1 The bins! The bins!

It occurs to me - thankfully too late to check - that maybe one of them was a special bin for white dog poo.
