Berlin has introduced five talking waste bins which say thank you in three different languages or scream “goal” to help promote a cleaner city.

The talking waste bins — which curiously say thank you in French, Japanese and English but not German — are located in an area popular with tourists at the central Potsdamer Platz and at the Zoo train station in the west of the city.

Fifteen more solar-powered talking waste bins may follow in the short term, Bernd Mueller, spokesman for the city’s waste disposal services, said Monday.
