Cleaning the streets

 

Copenhagen of lately has become quite a dirty city, so the city council has decided to keep on pouring a lot more money into keeping the streets and parks clean. What is really needed, in my opinion, is a change of attitude instead. It has become perfectly ok to litter wherever you are, even though there might be a trash can within a few steps of where you are. And before someone cry youngsters, it's not only kids and young people doing it, it's families and old people as well, men and women, rich and poor. Too many people seems to think that the garbage will magically disappear the second it is dropped on the ground. The result is obvious to anyone visiting the city, there seems to be trash lying around everywhere. I've got no easy solutions as a change in attitude is something that'll normally take years to happen.
