"Hmmmmm... ...": even though the dustbins at Malmo's David Hall bridge have an unassuming appearance, the sensual sound that emanates is quite surprising.
A new campaign was launched by the southern Swedish city to increase awareness about urban cleanliness. It replaced the traditional male voice in its talking bins with a more sensual, feminine voice and very poetic lyrics. Lutheran restraint may be a long way away.
The town hall set the objective at the beginning of the project, to talk about the really bad stuff, namely rubbish.
The talking trash cans were installed in the third city on the country's tributary artery. They have been there for several years and encouraged people to stay away from the Covid-19 pandemic.
The bin is equipped with a detector as well as a sound module and launches a brief voice message when the user opens it.
