There is an insane amount if litter on the streets of Reykjavík.

Everything you can imagine is one the sidewalks, urine (smells the worst on a Saturday or Sunday morning), vomit (also the worst on the weekends), beer glasses, beer bottles and cans (these are usually cleared up fast by bottle pickers), candy wrappers, broken glass, bits of clothing (I once found a pair of panties in our yard), burger wrappers, cardboard from pizza and other odd bits (once, while walking Kasper to school, I saw a vibrator on the road).

As a credit to the city, they clean the roads and sidewalks very often.

To the drunk people, you should be ashamed of yourself.

Also, to be fair, I live right downtown. This is where I do my shopping, going for coffee and walking. This is also the worst area for the litter problem.

This is what most tourists see as well, and it is a problem that needs to be fixed if Iceland plans to keep the tourism industry alive and well.

So, maybe we needs some commercials like this.
