Talking trash were being installed in three locations in the Indische Buurt in Amsterdam. The bins give you a compliment when you throw trash into them, in a playful attempt to stimulate residents to use the bins instead of throwing their rubbish on the streets, Het Parool reports.

The three talking trash cans are located on Batjanstraat, on Makassarplein and on Sumatraplantsoen. They will be unveiled at 3:00 p.m. on Thursday. If they prove to be effective, they will be installed in more places.
