    So QH's house is now referred to as the Tuliphole?

    "If you didn't do anything that wasn't good for you it would be a very dull life. What are you gonna do? Everything that is pleasant in life is dangerous."

    I want to see the hand of history on his collar.

      They will just ignore it like the lowlifes they are. We have plenty of bins around which people ignore, even to the extent of dropping their bag close by. No amount of bins will alter their attitude :-(

        It must be a cultural thing because you will see teenagers sat next to a bin, or even ON a bin, deliberately throw their rubbish on the floor. Typical teen rebellion? Looking 'cool' by acting badly?
        People doing it from cars, I guess it comes from the above in many cases - it becomes engrained behaviour that isn't given a second thought.

        It really is such a pointless shame. We live in the countryside between two villages and every verge is drifted in cans and crisp packets and McDonalds bags. I mean at least fly-tipping is done for a reason, but littering is senseless.

        I have no idea how you would even start to change a multi-generational culture of littering (or anything else) though. Kids see their parents toss rubbish out of the car, so they naturally learn to do the same.

          I don't get why people make the effort to carry bags and pick it up, which is the gross part, and do this. There must be a reason, I mean if you just don't care why would you even have bags with you?

            There are some places where there is a distinct lack of bins for no sensible reason (other than councils not wanting to pay for them to be emptied) and so lazy people dump their rubbish rather than do the right thing. Hammersmith tube station has a sign urging people to use the bins yet underneath said sign, where the bin should be, the bin has been removed.

            Most of the time it's really no hardship to take your rubbish with you. Other times it's a minor inconvenience.

              While I don't condone it, pragmatically I can understand people littering when there is no bin. Nobody wants to carry a nearly-empty fisn'n'chips box or melted ice cream wrapper around... I certainly don't carry a bag with me at all times just in case. People shouldn't litter if there's no bin, and I don't, but realistically many will and it's daft to pretend otherwise.

              There's two groups, those who will litter if they can't see a bin and those who will litter regardless. The latter are the bigger problem IMO. Although around here we have had bins removed because they keep getting set fire to FFS.

                That might be worth a stern email to the council along with some photos.

                I look forward to your all knowing and likely sarcastic and unhelpful reply.

                  I'm not sure if it was on CUK or FB, but I saw a suggestion that McDonalds (maybe others) print the vehicle registration on drive-through order bags.

                    Maybe some bag it up and hang it on a branch with the intention of collecting it at the end of the walk. I'd imagine that wouldonly account for a minority, though. The rest are counting on the services of the poop fairy.

                      I think mandatory rubbish bag sorting in a stinky local landfill site would be better, surrounded by hordes of rats and deafening flocks of hungry seagulls!
