Italy has a huge waste problem, Austria have none due to the fact Austrians care for their country, Italians generally do not! Many Italians believe once they open plastic packaging and devour the contents, it is then that their responsibility ends, and they throw it anywhere!
However, in a "Wiedergutmachen" gesture of European unity the Austrians have kindly offered to burn Italian garbage and a deal has been struck whereby Austria is accepting train loads of rubbish for their incendiary plants to provide heating for freezing Austrians.
The Austrian government, bearing a massive guilty conscience, once upon a time utilised trains for very different reasons; to export a certain part of the Italian population they believed to be nothing better than garbage.
Being associated these days with a certain, infamous dictator, still makes many Austrians cringe. So, the government has bowed to their wishes, and instead of deporting what he and many Austrians believed to be less than rubbish, they are now importing real rubbish and relieving Italy of a massive environmental problem!
History has a way of either repairing itself, or repeating itself. Luckily, Austrians prefer repairing instead of the other alternative, and will only ever burn Italian real rubbish instead of their historical version (you know what I mean!).
