After all, a nice bureaucratic word creation has already brought this everyday annoyance to the country: Garbage collectors call it “provisions” when people don’t stuff their cardboard boxes and pizza boxes into the container, but place them next to them. And they do,, more and more often. Last year, according to the Federal Association of Parcel and Express Logistics, 3.65 billion parcels were sent, and the trend is rising. That’s a good twelve million deliveries every day –
City councilors and parcel senders now regularly warn that the boxes should be folded properly and flattened in order to save space. However, if you look at the mountains next to the containers, you suspect that a lot of educational work is still necessary. And inevitably the question arises: does that even have to be? That a huge amount of garbage is created with every package?
