In 1970's RT before recycling was a thing a galvanised steel bin with lid was located at the stairwell end of the corridor. When polished with Brillo pad, Brasso, then given a coat of wax polish and buffed, such a bin acquired the gleaming finish of a silver trophy. This was the required standard for the inside and outside of the bin.
Under no circumstances was waste of any description—even the smallest sweetie wrapper—permitted to be deposited in the sacred bin.
We once failed an inspection for having litter in the bin and minuscule water droplets in the sink. Attention to detail!
