India FAQ #45: what should I do with my trash?

As India is a land of many cultures and practices, you actually have four distinct options:

1. pile it on the side of the road and burn it
2. pile it on the side of the road (without burning it)
3. throw it onto the railway tracks before your train arrives
4. visit a historical site (preferably a UNESCO “Heritage Site” or one of the “Seven Wonders of the World”), climb to the highest point you can, and throw it off (preferably into a greenish cesspool that used to be a moat hundreds of years ago, but just onto the ground is fine too)

Many locations have large “cans” with “please use me” printed on the side. It is best to ignore these.
