Thanks Meena! I'll look out for ways to continue this offline and post updates back here. Thanks!

Andy commented on Gold Medal Service

great idea. I'm also wondering if there's something we can take from the system of receiving cash for returning your empty glass bottles? (is that still practised anywhere?). Perhaps if the neighbourhood tanks (PCBs?) are privately 'owned' by someone in the neighbourhood and they get paid by the operator based on volume collected? So the local tank owner would empty the toilets in the neighbourhood because he gets paid the more he collects. The operator would pay because he's providing the service. This would need some sort of regulation to ensure that the operator doesn't take over the local tanks and avoid paying the neighbourhood guy.... needs more investigation.
