I’m not touching that one.
I used to have two baskets when I took my clothes to the laundromat. They were labeled “WHITE” and “COLORED”. Somewhat surprisingly, nobody at the laundromat ever made any comments whatsoever.
A lot of rubbish tips do make that distinction. “White” things are appliances made of (traditionally white-)enameled steel. I don’t know whether enameled cast iron (claw-foot tubs) and fired porzellan (loo commodes and sinks) also qualify.
Obviously created before being “ politically correct” was popular…
Not touching that with a ten foot pole.
Is that Buster Keaton?
What? No old house trailers?
The dump for Sarasota County Florida had signs directing you to where you should get rid of your White Goods, which I thought was a silly enough name. Besides they’d have needed a bigger area to dump all the White Trash.
Kliban rarely used puns.
Black trash matters!
