'Garbage' is an American English word that I've never heard anyone use in the UK, 'jail' is used in both but has associations with the USA (most Brits would use 'prison' for the noun), 'ya' is a way of indicating a broad accent, but doesn't apply to most modern British regional accents.That's the source AntiScam gave us a link to in post 1, MrP.
