How volunteers clean up rivers from rubbish in the capital of Bangladesh
A lot of waste has accumulated around the world during quarantine, even in civilized countries, to say nothing of states such as Bangladesh. These photographs show how volunteers struggle with trash, completely immersed in waste rivers.
Nevertheless, even in Bangladesh, in particular in Dhaka, they are trying to deal with this problem, albeit not in very traditional and even in some primitive ways - due to the work of fearless street cleaners whose the work itself may well occupy a leading place among the worst professions in the world, since these guys have to swim almost naked in the rivers, stuffed to the brim with different wastes, making attempts to clean them from all that abundance of trash formed in the process of human life.
In unusual photographs below you can see how volunteers clean the canal Savara, Dhaka. Previously, the canals were filled with water, but now these rivers of the region, located 24 kilometers northwest of the capital of Bangladesh, have become more like garbage streams. Mountains of black bags, plastic bottles, empty packaging and household waste simply picked up and completely blocked the canal in Savara.
The rivers and canals of Dhaleshvari, Banshee and Turag, under the jurisdiction of the municipalities, have been littered with garbage for years. According to the “New Age Bangladesh”, the cleaners of the municipality of Savara performed an operation to clean up rivers and feces from household, plastic, medical, industrial and electronic waste in 50 places. Last year, representatives of the municipality announced that they collect at least 200 tons of waste daily, which accumulate in the lowlands connected to the rivers.
Monsoon rains, the season of which is just continuing in India, brings a lot of problems. One of the residents of Mumbai posted a shocking video in which a car in a parking lot suddenly goes underground.
In the frames, you can see how the car (it looks like it is empty) suddenly seems to lose its support and begins to roll, plunging first with its wheels, then with its hood into a hole that eroded the coating. The failure turns out to be so deep that the unfortunate machine goes into the open earth completely.
Fortunately, the cars standing nearby were not damaged.
It became known that there was a well at this place, which was even cemented, but due to heavy rain, a failure was formed, according to The Times of India. Rescuers and police who arrived at the scene took the necessary steps to get the car out of the water trap.
