Living in Berlin you may be quite familiar with this image. Sometimes the containers at your local glass waste collection point could not get emptied in time – but of course people keep leaving bottles and jars at the collection point. So things begin to pile up. And I must admit that I also wouldn’t want to carry the bags full of glass waste back home.
After a while a colorful ‘carpet’ of empty bottles and jars surrounds the containers.
During these strange Corona times the local glass waste collection point also offers another layer of communication. At least you can see that some people are have ‘fun’ somehow, some time, some where.
After taking this photo the glass carpet at this collection pint kept growing for a few more days – but I somehow could not be bothered to take another and yet another photo. Now I kind of regret not documenting the situation. Next time I will.
