Just by way of background, the Landkreis recently awarded the pickup of recyclables to a new (and local) company. Previously,the yellow sacks (which is where Germans put their recyclable plastic and metal) were available in the local town halls. The new company is going to be rationing them much more strictly. Every household gets 2 rolls/year and if you want more you have to request them and provide the company with a lot of private info. And then the rolls will just get left on your doorstep. When this was announced, there was a massive run on the things, lots of people are out, and the company can't meet demand. It's quite the hot topic here.

Thus far there's only been one caricature, the Landrat, but I'm sure there will be many more as the story unfolds.


Thanks so much for the background. Appreciated.
