Red-Litter Day

One Man’s Trash Is Another Man’s Measure

Litter bins featuring celebrity voices saying "thank you" are being tested in Finland. If successful, they could be adopted across Europe. Helsinki has four bins with movement detectors and voice recorders which will be moved once a week. The trial "celebrity" is city mayor Jussi Pajunen. His message says: "It's great that you care about the city. Cool."

FOOTNOTE: Junk male.

That's so creepy. I would be reminded of Oscar the Grouch from Sesame Street!

Love your footnote. I've met a few in my day. :)

Thanks for the laugh.

I dread to think what z list celebrity it would be in the uk. The bin of course would be beaten up by a passing drunk beacuse it spoke to him

Whatever gets the job done, I guess. What's that say about us that we need to be prompted by celebrities to do what should be commonsense?
