Good to restart this but we may need to check the boxes are actually
full of trash - some items might be useful. From what I recall, the
rotation was done to make sure at least one box was empty - otherwise
it was left as a bits-box.

This is just a once-a-month opportunity to tidy and coordinate trashing

This is more a way to generate good practise, not a complete decision
making methodology in itself. We have other things for that.
