Bits of dead pope and a naked portrait of Einstein: here’s London’s weirdest rubbish

James Manning

Welcome to London, where even our rubbish is really fucking weird. A waste disposal company called Envirowaste has revealed some of the odd stuff they’ve unearthed in the city’s bins and house clearances in the last five years. Their list includes…

A bone fragment from the first-century Pope Clement I

A stuffed cat dressed in a baby’s onesie

A nude painting of Albert Einstein

A Super Soaker full of urine

A notebook entirely filled with the words ‘I’m the Devil’

A sealed box full of maggots

A hand-cranked dildo from 1914 called the Vibrako Blood Circulator

Maybe it’s finally time to have that declutter you’ve been putting off all summer.

In other gross news, London is being infested with ‘super bedbugs’.
