I don't get it?
Everyone throws their water cups/bottles from the stations to the side of the road?
Marshals, very kindly pick them up for us. Some will stand there with an open bin bag to put 'em in but I think it's pretty much expected that's what we're going to do.
I'm actually going to write to my local council though since on my running route yesterday (16.2 miles), there weren't ANY bins aside from places like garages/my gym that I could have put an empty bottle in. I think that's terrible and just encourages people to litter since there aren't adequate places to throw away rubbish.
