The garbage collectors

 

It is incredible how much rubbish we throw into the garbage bin. It always seems to be full. A garbage bin is never nice to look at and get near to. The smell can be quite strong. So we are very thankful to the garbage collectors who come and remove the garbage.

They normally come thrice a week. If they miss a day or two, then the garbage bins in my neighborhood overflow onto the road. This invites stray dogs and other scavengers. Only when the garbage truck comes again is the problem taken care of. So we can see how important these garbage collectors are.

When they come, they usually make a lot of noise. Often they are moody. We bear with them because theirs is not a very pleasant job. It is dirty and smelly. Besides, God knows what sort of rubbish they have to handle every day. How they can stand the filth and stench I do not know. Perhaps they are used to it. I know for sure that they do not love their jobs. Who would?

Nevertheless, they do come regularly to perform an important job. On festive occasions we give them gifts, usually small amounts of money, as a token of appreciation for a job well done. Granted they are noisy, dirty and sometimes cranky, but how else can they behave when they have to do work that most people would not touch? Nobody would like to work as a garbage collector.

Anyhow someone has to do the dirty job. The least we can do is make their job easier by keeping our garbage in proper bins and showing them a little appreciation now and then.
