Here in Finland we have dish draining cabinets. They are placed over the sink with draining racks, and cabinet doors like the rest of the cabinets. It is great because it saves counterspace.

Garbage, or waste chutes are very common in high-rise apartment buildings in Canada. And they are quite sanitary as they are located on each floor of the building and the waste is allowed to fall into a dumpster unit that is located on the ground floor in a designated room constructed for the purpose of storing the dumpster.

The dumpster is usually mounted on wheels so it can be wheeled out of the garbage or waste room to a waiting waste removal truck that has a fork lift mounted on the front. The fork lift is used to pick up the dumpster and dump its contents into the bed, or hopper of the truck. The waste is then taken to a landfill site and dumped.

Pull-string bathroom light switches used to be common in houses in Canada that were built before 1940 or thereabouts. Canada used to be a British colony, so British influences in architecture and other areas were (and still are to a lesser degree) common.
