We finally got the whole green garbage bin debacle situated, when we discovered that the "garbage boy" is no longer collecting our garbage. Imagine my amusement/frustration when I was informed that due to a new neighborhood "green" initiative, I would now have to sort (aka sift through my trash) and segregate it into small, recyclable piles.
Please note the irony here as this is one of, if not THE, dirtiest places I have ever been in my entire life.
I was given a placard, on non-biodegradable paper by the way, regarding the "Rules For Segregation of Garbage." In keeping with the Indian's natural obsession with bureaucracy, the instructions outline the fifteen or so processes one must take in order to keep their home rubbish free.
While I admire their initiative, I think their execution is a little misguided. Not to sound cynical, but I think this is merely a measure to make it easier for the feral animals to dine on the street.
