Share bikes have wreaked havoc across Sydney streets and suburbs.

But it doesn’t compare to the problem the ride-share system poses in China… yet.

Authorities in China have begun the process of collecting stranded bikes and dumping them into makeshift graveyards (see video below).

Waverly Council in Sydney has already taken similar steps, collecting discarded bikes and charging a fee to the companies to collect them.

In some European countries and in the states across the US, share bikes use a docking system, charging users if the bike is not returned to a dock.

“Do you reckon they’ve got share bikes scattered around the streets of Manhattan? No, because there are proper docking systems,” says Ben Fordham.

“It also shows you can do it if you actually do it properly.”
