Rubbish Collectors


Rubbish collectors

Just clicked through this BBC photo essay (scroll down and look for “night shift, sorting London’s rubbish”) following two men working for a commercial waste hauler as they make their way through the streets of London.  Photographer Emma Lynch captures the surreal side of the graveyard shift.  Don’t miss the captions!

    Nice, but I gotta say I’ve seen better coverage of night shift garbage duty before. Those Brits just don’t get down n dirty enough, so stiff! Did you ever see Dave Atell’s Insomniac on Comedy Central where he goes on a late night shift with DSNY Good stuff, great shots and funny. I love that guy.

    Can’t find a youtube clip but it’s out there somewhere….
