11 One Day of a Garbage Truck Driver

One Day of a Garbage Truck Driver

Posted on January 2, 2013 by team

Every day citizens of Minsk throw tons of garbage away: on the pavement and into special containers. We are going to spend one day with a person whose job is to keep the city clean.

Andrey starts his working day at 8 a.m. and finishes it at 8 p.m. For this time he manages to overcome 140-180 km along the city and unload garbage from 140 containers.

Sometimes drivers of garbage trucks have to start they way much earlier – at 6 a.m. to avoid traffic jams. But usually Andrey repairs his car in the morning. If it breaks he loses some profit. However if he helps to repair the car he gets 10% bonus.

        How can you say that? American garbage is the best, it smeels like roses and everything is sorted into special categories before by wonderful caring non-fat American people who like to save energy and do all their best for a good and wealthy nature.

    medical exam = breathalyzer to confirm sobriety.

    ‘..Andrey has to move them with his hands.’ Oh my, poor guy.

    On the other hand, here they have to move all of them by hand, to the back of the truck, and back. But then again, we use plastic 650L containers, with wheels underneath.
