All residents of the apartment building put their burnables in one metal barrel. It is burned daily. Plastic, cans and glass go in another. Every couple of days some men separate the contents into two sacks and then they haul them away.
Every morning one of the helpers empties the food scraps from the plastic buckets in our dirty kitchens. I had no idea where the food went after that, today I found out. They take it up to the second floor and toss it over the fence into a vacant field. Dogs, cats, chickens, wild birds, rats and insects take care of it.
