After the Christmas party, a set of photos of some recycling bins of Brighton & Hove in my project “After the party”. The sociology revealed by the various collections of bottles is fascinating.
Brighton & Hove’s recycling policy demands glass bottles are presented outside the property in a black bin which is supplied by the council. Some interesting sociology has grown up around these boxes, some residents placing their Christmas party bottles in a showy manner to one-up their neighbours. Others don’t play or deliberately hide their expensive bottles under more modest glassware. There’s a mix of types of drinks, the wines and the spirits then the beers and the cider. Our box has nothing like as many bottles as any of these.
I love the cardboard box of Prosecco peeking out from under the lid of the bin, it speaks volumes.
I would most like to have been at the Christmas party with the Barolo Peironte 2013 and the Conte Pruili Prosecco, both DOC.
My friend Wolf in Vienna points out “Those bottles look like an archaeological dig of some medieval trash heap and tells you something about how people lived...”
