Household rubbish is left in bags outside the door, usually from 7 to about 9 in the morning. Some people hang their bags from door handles, or from pieces of wire, like this:

This is to prevent scavengers such as rats, and seagulls from tearing the bags open, and scattering the rubbish everywhere.

I haven't yet seen a rat, but these seagulls are huge!
