TOUGHEST PLACE TO BE A BINMAN – JAKARTA

Uncategorized

Jungle Run Productions organized this BBC shoot that paired a London rubbish collector with his counterpart in Jakarta. The Londoner was amazed to find no sorting of trash for recylcing, and duties that include pulling a hefty cart by hand and clearing plastic from open drains. Ultimately he was reduced to tears. Since the programme aired on 29 January, viewers have pledged their support to imprive the Jakarta binman’s condition.
