Faramarz Mozaffari, IranWire
In 2009, when media reported the theft of 4,000 garbage cans in Tehran, the director-general of the city’s Department of Motor Vehicles stated that “these containers were stolen to be used in industrial centers, gardens, restaurants and other such places.” At that time authorities identified 15 people as garbage-can thieves and sent them to court. The official asked private entities to inform the city if they needed containers or to buy them from manufacturers.
