The number of "single use" plastic bags that are going to get distributed by the end of the plague, much to the chagrin of Her Worseship, is one of the few silver linings in all this mess.  :)

New York City have for example I guess because they have no room for dumpsters they just pile massive mountains of garbage bags out on the sidewalk which often break open and spew trash and bags all over and into the waterways surrounding it (also usually oozing all over the sidewalk) and I think a general lack of caring because there’s already trash everywhere.

 

 

Thats normal for denser cities with older buildings. My daughter lives in central London and she puts her trash out on the sidewalk every other night. The cleanup crews hit every street pretty well every night. People put old tvs. chairs and mattresses out on the street and they are all picked up
