A load of rubbish

Along the promenade at Cleethorpes I passed these two rubbish “bins”. One, south of the pier, jauntily named “Hammy the Haddock” (although Hammy sounds more like a pig’s name). The other, to the north of the pier didn’t have a name that I noticed, but as it’s a repressentation of our planet, I assume it’s called “Earth”.

It’s possible that there may be more of these designs further down the promenade to the south, but I didn’t walk much beyond Hammy on this visit. They are nicely designed pieces of functional street furniture and I can easily imaging children (and even adults) being excited to put their rubbish into either one rather than dropping it on the ground.

  1. What a great idea for a rubbish bin! The only downside I can think of, is if someone tosses a drippy, partially-eaten ice cream cone or a tray full of chips or fries doused in drippy ketchup for mustard. I imagine they must have to power wash more often than regular rubbish bins.

    1. Yeah, that’s true. The globe has a sign next to it saying it’s for recycling plastic bottles but I wouldn’t put it past some people to put other stuff inside. Maybe if I visit again during tourist season I’ll see how it fares. 😀
