Why are some communes dirtier
Being new in Brussels, I wanted to understand why some communes are dirtier than others.
I'm staying in the ambiorix square area, and if you go down the street on Rue de Eburons, you are in the St. Josse area, which is significantly dirtier than the ambiorix area.
Friend I'm staying with who is very politically correct says it is because is an 'exotic' area, but don't all the taxes pay for all the communes to be cleaned the same way, or are the communes alloted to clean their areas?
And just a side story...today I was coming back on bus 63 from central station, and right on Rue de Eburons, there was a lady with a little girl who appeared to be 3, 4 years old. The little girl was squatting down, peeing on the sidewalk with the mom hurrying her along. A bit disappointing to see that happening in Belgium, but I suppose is part of the exotic charm.
