We had all new bins put on the lamp posts along the seafront here in Alex last summer.....mysteriously all disappeared now
The nice thing is though that they have been doing up all along the front, re painting the sunshades and repairing seating and railings (the railings were stolen and sold for scrap!!). Just wondering how long it will stay nice, we've already had some ignorant people writing graffiti over the walls, its everywhere.
Hope you get to keep your bins though
Let's hope for some joined up thinking here and that arrangements have been made to empty the bins when they're full.My street now has litter bins/baskets attached to posts and I notice so many more in Zamalek last night.
I hope this is a trend that will soon be seen all over Cairo and more importantly people using them,
