伦敦和利物浦将安装“能说会唱的垃圾桶”

英国某艺术组织发起了一个名为“垃圾桶思维”的活动,计划于今年十月在伦敦和利物浦街头安装25个“能说会唱的垃圾桶”。当有人往垃圾桶投扔废弃物时,就会有个名人对他们说一句鼓励的话或者唱上几句。

Would the voice of Amanda Holden saying “your city had talent” encourage you to use a litter bin?

Or maybe former Monty Python star Michael Palin telling you no-one had expected “the Spanish bin-quisition”?

Organisers of a scheme recruiting celebrities to lend their voices to “talking bins” believe it can make a real difference to keeping Britain tidy.

They hope that by using humour, they will succeed where fines and warnings have failed in keeping streets and parks clean.

A similar experiment in Sweden found a talking bin received nearly three times as much rubbish as an ordinary one because people were attracted by its novelty(新奇) value.

Twenty-five specially adapted bins to be installed in the streets of London and Liverpool next month will use a sound card to play a themed message when litter is placed inside. For example, one near the Royal Opera House will play a thank you message sung by soprano(女高音) Janis Kelly to the tune of Nessun Dorma.

Bins installed in Liverpool will play Beatles-themed messages.

For others, Britain’s Got Talent judge Holden is expected to record the message: “This is Amanda, and this city’s got talent”.

The campaign, entitled Bin Thinking, is being organised by arts group Sing London for Keep Britain Tidy’s love Where You Live initiative(主动权,首创精神) .

If successful, talking bins could become a familiar feature on Britain’s streets.

Colette Hiller, director of Sing London, said: “The idea is to reward people in a small way for changing their behaviour and raise awareness through a sense of fun.”
