Traveling butler


The BSR comes up with the funniest campaigns to help keep the city clean. Reiner the "bin butler" makes an appearance every once in awhile on Friedrichstrasse or other heavily-trafficked areas to remind people to put their bins in the bin! If you like signs, you'll find more of them at Signs, Signs.

PS: I have a bonus Viennese sign up on my travel blog. And please send me good luck and positive thoughts this afternoon - I have a phone interview (only my second since moving to Berlin).

  5. I am sending you high and good energy right this very minute! Love the way education is done in a visual way; too bad we have to remind people to take care of their environment, tho.

    I'm pleasantly surprised that no one has left an empty pop can (or other rubbish) on his tray.

    1. Reiner is actually a talking robot. He moved around and asked people to put their bins on his tray so he could properly dispose of them. (Of course, it was all controlled by someone hiding nearby).

  19. Very cute! I can imagine in the U.S. that people would end up putting their Starbucks coffee cups on the tray!
