Eurotrash. Literally.


I am completely outraged! 

This is a shot I took with my phone while coming back from work:


I am not sure you can appreciate the depth of it, but it is about 7-8 meters. And this pile of crap is right in front of the building of the Bulgarian National Television.

I don’t much understand politics, and quite honestly, I don’t care to. And I don’t give a damn if this is some perverse form of pre-election campaign, but for crying out loud, I do not want to live in a city like this! A European capital at that! 

Shit like this does not stop agencies to request millions of governmental money to advertise Bulgaria though. Sure! Елате ни вижте!

“Eurotrash. Literally.”

    Yeah, it’s really disgusting, I agree. But if you look closer you’ll see that the huge percentage of the trash is packages that could have been disposed of separately in the first place. As far as I know, the companies for separate collection are still functioning (there have been problems there due to the crisis, however). So, if the average Sofian had made the simple effort of separating their trash instead of throwing it all in the common bin, the problem would have been less aggravating.
    Unfortunately the lack of sense of personal responsibilty about public matters/space is stilll a huge issue for us Bulgarians :(

    I couldn’t agree more – we should all be responsible for our surroundings. And it would be great if people made the effort to separate their trash! Do you know if it works? My sister told me a while ago that she saw the truck which takes the separated trash – and she saw them throwing the contents of the different bins into the same container – which defies the purpose and definitely demotivates people to take care to separate their trash …
    I hope this is no longer the case.
    When I was in France I saw something really interesting – trash bags which were separated into different sections – color coded with the colors of the respective bins. It made it really easy to separate stuff while you throw it out – and when you took the trash down, you just wripped the bag into separate sub-bags – quite convenient.
    However, what I am objecting to is making trash-collection a platform for political games. It annoys the crap out of me.
