||This is a specialization of the general idea of using computer modelling in town planning. Which is in itself a good idea and much better than the current method which seems to involve throwing darts at a local map and saying "That'll do".

and then replace them wherever there is the most litter?
||You'd have to do it when there's no wind, or else the bins will all end up tucked away in corners where the wind eddies.
