Hong Kong is very vertical, not sure how long you were there for. Perhaps their trash pickup is better. But they'd have to pick it up like every day to compete with the mounds of it. When you are talking 20 story plus buildings all over the places, that's a lot of trash. Cans would just take up too much space.I sure as hell didn't see mountains of trash when I was walking around HK, an equally vertical city...
I live in what's considered practically a neighborhood of Manhattan, in NJ. Some people use all cans, some use bags. It's never been a quality of life issue. Never smells like trash either. It's a temporary eyesore, but just part of urban living.
