Talking trash in Athens

Athenian sanitation workers protest together with heavy Autumn rains has led to thousands of tonnes of garbage piling up on the streets to be washed around the stinking city.

After Health and Interior Ministers announced that uncollected garbage is posing a severe public health risk to citizens, workers
 decided to relieve their 10-day protest.
They have promised to collect garbage from the streets close to open-air markets (laiki), schools and hospitals.

Are they talking trash or does the ministries end up using private companies to do the dirty work? But wait, who ends up picking up all of the unused and discard cars around the trash containers?
