Filth Putting

I found this sign in a public bathroom by a castle. And now I have a new favorite euphemism for trash bin.

filth putting

I assume this sign has been put up because in places such as South Korea and China, it is common practice to throw toilet paper into the rubbish bin rather than directly into the toilet. Japan wants you to discard your used toilet paper in the toilet bowl and flush it away. So, please only use the filth putting in this bathroom for other trash. Thank you.

P.S. I asked my Korean co-worker if the Korean on this sheet was wrong and she said it is a little bit off, but she wasn’t laughing, so I guess it isn’t a funny mistake.
