EP 17

The government recently introduced trash bins with “small mouths” as part of the first phase of a campaign aimed at reducing the rubbish on streets. The Food and Environmental Hygiene Department hopes that the new bins will solve the problem of people placing oversized rubbish in and around the rubbish bins.
