“Some men see no garbage bin and ask, “Why?” Others see no garbage bin and ask, “Why not?” ~ Reuven Efraim Kennedy
Why not get a bin during the week and place it there?
Speaking of tissues, this is a good time to bring up tissue conservation. Many people upon using a tissue are prone to throwing it out right away, not realizing there is an entire other side which has not been used yet.June 7, 2012 2:13 pm at 2:13 pm #985007cherrybimParticipant

The issue of the tissue? I wouldn’t touch it.November 3, 2013 3:33 am at 3:33 am #985009BMG4MEParticipant
I never saw a used tissue on a table anywhere else other than in a beis medrash but the fact this only happened in shul never sunk in. I had thought that maybe this was a difference in etiquette between where I grew up and where I was now but now I see it may be a frum issue instead. This was during the week so I don’t think carrying on Shabbos was the issue! Not leaving dirty tissues on a table is a great pay to put some learning into practice.November 3, 2013 5:19 am at 5:19 am #985010justsayinMember
I saw an advertisement lately of someone selling such small ‘shtender tissue bins’. Don’t recall where though. Anyone know what I’m talking about?November 3, 2013 5:41 am at 5:41 am #985011jewishfeminist02Member
“What if someone woke up with a cold Shabbos morning and is using a tissue every 10 or 15 minutes?”
Sit in the back of shul so you can go in and out without disturbing others.November 3, 2013 1:35 pm at 1:35 pm #985012writersoulParticipant

It shows a lack of ???? ????? (not to be mistaken with “Kuvid Hataireh” – what people announce when they want you to move out of their way…)

Chulent (from one year ago): “What if the person is single or otherwise doean’t have a talis bag? (Or is a woman.)”
Then a woman should put the tissues in her tichel. 😛November 4, 2013 9:20 pm at 9:20 pm #985015golferParticipant
jfem, your advice is sensible. But a superficial scroll through this old thread will show you that you’re not dealing with sensible people here. People who leave used tissues on a table inside a shul are obviously not considerate or normal enough to take your good advice.
