Trash Day in Costa Rica

Who would have ever thunk that taking out the trash could be such an ordeal. In our home in California we used to pull the wheeled trash cans aaaalll the way out to the curb and the cans magically showed up empty by the end of the day. In our Apartment in California we would walk the trash out to the big shinny dumpster and somehow it went away.

Here in Costa Rica things are a little different. In commemoration of trash day, which is tomorrow, here is a video explaning how the trash “goes away” in San Jose, Costa Rica:

Very educational. I guess I'll have to get used to careful sorting in Germany, but I think the odds of scavengers tearing my trash bags apart will be fairly slim...

So do they stay away from the special bag??? Is it common practice that those bags are always blue? Yeesh. That's crazy.

Wow you must have had to go through a 5 minute lesson during your orientation for language school for how to handle trash day. You guys are pros now though.
