From Paul Y: 
Hi Otto,

Following up on your bytes yesterday I have this video from Japan. https://www.asahi.com/articles/ASLB056FRLB0UTIL03F.html?iref=comtop_8_01 

The video is in Shibuya at the world famous street crossing.

What struck me about this video is near the end are young Japanese collecting rubbish. The sign says “We will collect your rubbish.”

Very inspiring and I thought I should share.

Cheers,
Paul 
Thanks Paul.

Note at vthe end that one of the males has a giant open backpack on his back for people to throw garbage into.
