Finally arrived at the garbage station without surprise.

More than an hour ago, Mr. Chen was still annoyed by the "garbage mountain" that had been piled up in the stairs again and again. He reached out and picked up the red-dyed sanitary napkins, masks and food residues scattered on the ground. Du La."

Chen Sheng is a cleaner in the tenement house, taking care of the garbage out of the entire building, and that's the case day by day.

The epidemic broke out, the amount of garbage doubled, and the old problems continued to reinforce and reincarnate infinitely.

In another district, Uncle Yin, a worker in charge of the back alleys of the market, only hoped that the citizens would not throw rubbish everywhere, but they had no choice but to make corrections. Some even removed the FEHD’s “eyes of the sky” to avoid responsibility. , (The epidemic) will definitely break out."

Two seventy-year-old cleaners, in different positions in the community, dare not imagine what they would be once infected. "It's just hope... Everyone can do it well."

(The third part of the city's anti-epidemic series)

The trash can is often full of juice

Early in the morning, Mr. Chen had been guarding the back stairs of a tenement building in the Central and Western District, camping in a corner where no one had set foot.

Occasionally someone pushed the door, but hurriedly threw down the garbage, turned and left.

The 7-storey building has trash plastic bins behind the smoke-proof doors, which are always full after one night.

Picking up hundreds of levels, dumping garbage, cold food juices scattered on the ground, cigarette butts, cotton swabs, tissue balls, panties, red-dyed sanitary napkins, and even used masks. Mr. Chen will silently pick up, "Urine There are all the pieces." The most outrageous time was when the vegetable juice poured out of the garbage bag overnight, and the sour smell poured in. "The stairs are all wet." Sometimes durian shells and glass fragments are also found in the garbage bag. A little carelessness will hurt your hands and feet.

The amount of anti-epidemic garbage kept at home has increased sharply

"For those who are good, although the blessing has not yet come, the misfortune is far away"-his handwritten "warm reminder" is pasted on the wall. The handwriting is beautiful and the tone is sincere and respectful, but it is always ignored. "It's easy to talk about it," he felt sad for a while.

The lower floors are the hardest hit areas. In recent years, many units in the building have been classified as sub-districts, one with two, or even one with four. In a small space, the garbage doubles. "In the past, there were 4 bags of garbage on the first floor and 8 bags of garbage from home." The amount is particularly large. "Maybe everyone doesn't go out of the street and stay in the house and hold the ground."

The epidemic has been protracted. Under the gathering restriction order and night market ban on food, trash cans are also like "nouveau riche", Baotou garbage is piled up like a mountain, and take-out boxes are also common, "at least 1/4 (more than usual)." A cleaner, he is a self-employed worker who is open throughout the year, and he also needs to arrange cleaning supplies at his own expense. The more trash, his labor will decrease in disguise, but the tenants owe public morals, he still understands, saying that it is a fault of the sub-house: Sometimes even training may not be enough."

After the third wave of the epidemic in Hong Kong, a total of more than 5,000 people have been diagnosed. In addition to restaurant staff, cleaners are often on the list.

Mr. Chen said that in response to the epidemic, additional bleach and Dettol were purchased to clean the area around the trash can, but the mouth of the trash bag is often open and it is difficult to defend. "There is no way to be surprised." What should be done if it is infected?

"If you get left, you just follow the fate. Anyway, it won't change."

The epidemic has been protracted, and the amount of work associated with cleaning is "unusual."

The back staircase where Mr. Chen works every day is like a time tunnel, dazzling and buried here for 40 years.

Wearing a mask, the deep track of his forehead and his thick eyebrows are particularly conspicuous. The reporter said that he looks very young, and Mr. Chen's eyes are curved into a line, "Haha, I am 70 years old this year." He said with a little pride that he was not. He used the medical voucher and tried to get sick once. He didn't have to find an old friend to replace him in a hurry and continued to work. The bag is covered with newspapers, "It's easy to wear," and there is a hose at the bottom of the red, white and blue plastic bag, which is convenient for dragging on the stairs, but day after day, it is unavoidable that the waist is sore and "I can use medicine and wine. "

Life is hard, Mr. Chen is also used to cleaning, even if it is dirty and sloppy, he has long been used to it. "If you can get in, you won’t be surprised." Others roll their eyes, but he calmly said, "Some people (seeing you passing) will take care of it. Bag, there are some people who will "put your mouth and face" and say you are so stink", won't you be embarrassed?

"You have freedom."

The reporter followed Mr. Chen to push the rubbish to a nearby rubbish station. Some workers caught a glimpse of the reporter's filming and were very nervous, "Isn't it the rubbish from the nearby diagnosed person?" After Daoming came, he let out a sigh of relief and also held up the injustice for his colleagues. Residents) Don’t litter, it’s hard work.” “It doesn’t matter if I do it, but it will affect other people,” Chen Sheng said bitterly.

"Tie multiple mouths and don't let it out." His wish is simple, and it is not difficult for others. "I hope everyone can have a tail."

Uncle Yin (a pseudonym) is also cleaning up the mess in the city, who cleans up trash on the streets every day, wearing a straw hat and being exposed to the sun and rain.

Also in his early 70s, Uncle Yin has only been in the industry for more than a year, and he belongs to the "first brother" in the industry.

He is an outsourced cleaner and belongs to the Chongren Street garbage station managed by the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department. Uncle Yin is a taller man and is responsible for the garbage in Baotou in the back lane with another partner. The lady cleans up the garbage and debris at the back of the house. Go to the trash black spot to pick up.

The trolley was full of bags, and Uncle Yin walked around the noisy and prosperous market, silently transporting the garbage back to the garbage station.

Clean up more than 100 catties of garbage every day

The four-person team arranged many back alleys near the market and turned into the damp and gloomy cold alleys. The ditch by the foot was surging. "Look at it and burst the left ditch." But the shock is more than that.

The FEHD garbage station only collects household garbage, while the shop garbage needs to be sent to the landfill by itself. However, the back alley has become a shelter. The garbage corpses are everywhere, and the styrofoam bins are piled up with cardboard boxes and plastic bags. Lying horizontally scattered, fragments of fish heads, bones, and stinky water continued to remain.

Hundreds of catties of garbage were waiting to be handled at every turn, which lasted for more than an hour or more than two hours. The trolleys were dispatched when they were empty, and they were often full on the return journey, bringing back bags full of filth, and sweating in work clothes.

Lengxiang became a garbage shelter, but this garbage shouldn't have appeared here.

Must be submissive?

Uncle Yin pointed out that some shops hire "transporters" for a fee and instruct the other party to move them to the garbage station. "But they just ask them to pick up the cold alley and throw them to the left." "The money will be collected, and I will do it." Reported to the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department, but to no avail. If this is the case, there is a vicious circle, "If you don’t insist, there must be a big outbreak (epidemic) in Kwun Tong." The Food and Environmental Hygiene Department has also installed "Sky Eyes" nearby to monitor illegal garbage disposal. , But was taken away twice, "Zuo Miying is not enough."

The closed-circuit television outside the garage provides an overview of everything.

The garage and the garbage station are separated by a hundred meters, and the video is played in rewind. Every early morning, someone carries a bag and two bags of garbage and throws them away before the garbage station opens. "Just put it on the ground," the garage owner looks at each other. , "The Food and Environmental Hygiene Department is okay, and it's a cleaner."

Uncle Yin used to work in the field, but he was forced to retire as he grew older. I remember that when he first switched careers, he was not used to it. "It was wet and smelly when I entered." Compared with the previous manual labor, the current job is even more difficult. Hey, but it doesn’t stink.” His son told him to resign, “I’m too old.” He refused to admit his fate, and laughed that reworking can be used as exercise, “It’s not like doing (physical) doing it first.”

After walking around, the work clothes were soaked. After changing the jacket, Uncle Yin lifted up the corner of the work pants to show the reporter, "The texture is baked and silly." The weather was puzzled, but another female worker was wearing long sleeves abnormally, and she was a little helpless. To spit out the whole story, one pair of arms has a special "purpose", "You can use it as a towel to wipe sweat at any time."

The third wave of the epidemic hit, Yin Shu said that household waste increased by 1/3. He speculated that it was related to working at home and restricted eating orders. The elderly also engaged in high-risk jobs. "Avoiding is inevitable", and only washing hands frequently. "Older people will be troublesome."
