Cleaning Staff

Am I the only one who thinks it is fairly insulting to label your trash with "BASURA" written in large print? Could it be someone's profession to clean up trash in an office building, but they simply don't understand the word "TRASH"? Why do we assume that not only can they not speak English, but they speak Spanish and they cannot understand the most job-critical English word, trash? Maybe we should assume that they cannot read and we start using a trash icon; would that be reasonable?
