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.

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.
