Bringing Back TTC Subway Garbage Bins

blogTO Flickr pool member a.t_downtown caught sight of and photographed this band-aid solution to the seemingly endemic problem of platform-level litter on the TTC. Whether it was TTC staff or a rider that tied this garbage bag to a track-level railing at Eglinton West station is not known.

But it's a step in the right direction, I think. And it spawns many questions.

Is it time that the TTC bring back track-level garbage bins? Are we still facing a legitimate threat of terrorism via garbage bin bombs on our transit system? Has our fear of terrorism made permanent changes to our attitudes about security, safety, and risk? Have other cities with subways managed to keep/return bins at/to their track-level platforms?
