We all know that feeling of being ‘caught short’ but one cross-legged person in Brent found an unusual vessel of relief – a water gun.
The urine-filled ‘super soaker’ used by the desperate individual has been listed as one of the most bizarre items found dumped among rubbish in London.
Environmental waste clearance company envirowaste.co.uk has compiled a list of the top 20 weirdest finds in the city which also includes a box of live maggots which were also found in Brent.
Others on the list include:
• A stuffed cat dressed in a baby’s onesie
• The bones of Apostle St Clement
• A nude painting of Albert Einstein
• A life sized rubber doll (still inflated)
• A fully working Apple Macbook
• A vacuum sealed £5 note with Prince Charles’ signature
• A prosthetic leg
• A laminated love letter
James Rubin, owner of Envirowaste, said: “Often these unusual items can pose a problem on how to dispose of them in an environmentally safe way.
“For instance, the stuffed dead cat ended up going to a collector - minus the onesie - and the nude Einstein painting went home with one of our employees.”
“I think it’s safe to say that waste disposal is not a glamorous job, however it can certainly be an interesting one.
“We started keeping a tally of these items quite early on because it helps keep morale high and provides the team with sometimes a much needed laugh
“The majority of these items were found in domestic clearances where a person has passed away and EnviroWaste was hired to dispose of the contents of their house in an environmentally friendly way. London as we all know is a very vibrant and diverse place with lots of quirks, so it’s not surprising that we come across some really unusual and wonderful items.”
