Either.  It's not like irtc rejects images which are not exactly on
topic, and in some cases they reward them if the reinterpretation is
original, and interesting.  That's why they have the "Honorable Mention:
Concept, Originality, Interpretation of Theme" category.

For instance, if I had entered the last competition, I was considering
an interior scene, a man opening a gift, to find a lamp shaped like
a FROG.  The title would be "Marge! I said FOG light."

My overly pedantic take on this theme is that things don't go from
the "rubbage bin" (whatever the hell that is) to the Junkyard.
They go to the dump.  Junkyards are places where items which might
be resold and reused are taken.  I guess that argues more for your
second interpretation.  Still, I imagine a lot of people
will not catch that, and we'll see lots of garbage trucks and maybe
a few trash barges being entered.
