In the UK you most probably have a recycling bin as well.Which should I use in the following situations? I'm in the UK, so this is a question mainly about BrE usage, although if some AmE experts would like to reply, that would also be helpful!
(1) plastic bin under my kitchen sink - what do I call stuff that goes in it, and what do I call that bin? Rubbish/rubbish bin.
(2) bin next to my desk in the office - mostly for paper - same question as (1)? Waste paper/waste paper basket.
(3) large bin for all residents of the building, into which (1) gets emptied every few days? Rubbish/communal rubbish bin.
(4) bins in the street, for tourists/shoppers/etc to throw their newspapers, empty sandwich boxes etc in? Litter/litter bin.
thank you all for replies
