Lack of refuse bins

I was not able to find a refuse bin at most part of Heathrow Airport. I mentioned this to the staff at the check-in counter and asked her to throw away the wrappings that I had carried in my pocket. She explained that this is due to "security reasons". Frankly, I think that the security people have gone overboard in their measures. While security is important, it has to be practical and sensible and not caused a lot of inconvenience to the public. The real risk has also to be measured.


  1. There aren't rubbish bins in our MRT stations either, for the same reasons. The bins can only be found outside the entrances of the stations.

  2. I think that many people also don't realise as they rush on and off, our MRT stations have no refuse bins too. For the same reason, security.
