Dhaka’s stupid garbage collection method

People especially shopekeepers will choose an open place and start dumping waste until you install a covered dustbin. Still they might litter garbage outside the box! Photo taken from Noorjahan Road (south), Mohammadpur

Household garbage is collected by groups of poor workers, mainly children, and taken to primary dumping stations with several huge dustbins. Trucks come after regular interval, twice in three days, and take those to bigger stations or to the dumpyards outside the city

Unfortunately all these shitty things happen in open place and the workers given minimum safety gears.
