Very inefficient.

If they had worked any slower the bin would have been full again. I see the theory here that the bins wouldn't need emptying as often, but that wasn't a quarter full and what about the other two? Surly if they have gone to that much trouble to dig fecking holes big enough to hold those things there would be some method of checking if they need emptying or not. A simple camera on the end of a cable attached to a tablet would do it, I bought one for about a tenner. 8-)

Love these massive underground bins. Most of the time our tiny bins are overflowing.

In Stockholm I've seen machines suck tonnes of trash out of huge underground chambers.

It's not inefficient, trash gets emptied when it gets emptied, not when it's full. It clearly holds a lot more than a little street side trash bin and is a whole lot more aesthetic. Love Scandinavian countries! <3

#5 Of course it's inefficient as you are sending a team of paid men out in a lorry that uses fuel to empty a bin or bins potentially once a fortnight that probably only needs emptying once every six weeks. How is that efficient? Presumably they used to have regular bins at one point, so they must have changed to these large containers to save money on reduced collections. With the example we have just seen they are emptying them at the old rate.<3

#6 They may be emptying them at the old rate, but they hold a lot more, so they need to come around less often, they (the company) save gas, and wages paid to employees, hence it's more efficient. I'm sure the city council committee, or the county, or whatever it's called there, have done their research before they implemented that method. Now you're gonna make me want to look it up and read more...hahaha....:D<3

#7 Oh Thunderous one, my point was very clear but you seem to have missed it lol. Efficient would be emptying the bins when they are full, anything less is inefficient, of course the bins hold more, I get the principle BUT the bin they emptied looked to be only about a quarter full, therefore it was not ready to be emptied but it was which is inefficient. Oh my goodness I need a lie down...<3<3<3....WE NEED NEW VIDEO'S ADMIN!!!!!!

#9 Dearest JJ, I was not disputing that, but maybe they come around less frequently...haha...yes, get some well deserved rest...<3<3<3 I submitted many videos over the last month or so, many of which I thought were pretty good. I must say though, the last few by manro and yorfo were also really good ones.

#10 Yeah but if the bin is only a quarter full they are still coming too often lol. <3<3<3<3:squirrel:

#11 Okay, you are right, and I see what you're saying, you're saying, only if they would be full would it be efficient, and that's true, that would be a 100% efficiency.
But overall if they empty smaller bins on a weekly basis, some completely full, some not so much, the new system would still be more efficient than the old one.
I guess it depends on what kind of efficiency we are comparing here, the efficiency of the two systems or the efficiency of the new system in itself....O:)<3<3<3<3:squirrel:
