Put Your Trash Here
I didn't have much hope of success when I had Franklin (muralist, welder, Condega renaissance man) build this for me.
We clean the street and sidewalk in front of the house everyday, and the clean street was a magnet for wrappers, bottles, corn cobs, you name it.
But! Wonder of Wonders, the people actually use it, to the point where we have to empty it twice a week. This wasn't an original idea, there were a couple of German girls here for three months, and during their stay these receptacles with a "Gift of the people of some German town" on them started appearing around Condega.
My "Put Your Trash Here" is more to the point.
Which proves, given the appropriate tools, people will improve their lives (or at least mine).
