Public Services in Muscat

Complimenting them is a French made trash disposal system (similar systems are in at least Spain). The row of objects is the tip of the iceberg – with an underground storage system for the trash. It dosnt look as if its a sorted system and hardly looks as if it will take large objects.  But looking beyond them in the picture is the current system of green containers whose lids invariably are broken,  – so the new one is certainly an improvement.
