Philadelphia to model a new trash law after Disneyland trashcan trashcan

Lawmakers in Philadelphia are taking a cue from Walt Disney when it comes to trash and recycling. When he was building Disneyland, he did research on how far people would walk with their trash before giving up on finding a trash can and just throwing it on the ground instead. كيفية لعب البوكر للمبتدئين He determined that the distance was 30 steps and purposely put trash cans closer than 30 steps together at his theme park.

In Philadelphia, the City Council is trying to pass a bill that would require any size store that sells food to have a trash can within ten feet of the entrance. Councilwoman Blondell Reynolds Brown sponsored the bill and said, “Restaurants in particular, corner stores especially, will now be required to have some type of trash receptacle and a recycling bin outside of their establishment. Because if we accept the Disneyland theory, when citizens do not have a receptacle within thirty steps of leaving the store, it ends up on the corner. So (this) is a small step toward trying to clean up our city beyond the boundaries of the Center City District.”

In a related bill, the City Council is also asking landlords to put trash and recycling bins inside their apartment buildings so trash doesn’t have to be kept in apartments until pick-up day.

Brown said, “So now landlords (at buildings with) ten or more apartments have to make sure there’s a trash receptacle on the premises. مراهنات كرة القدم اليوم

The mayor is expected to sign both bills into effect.
