street cleaning

Hong Kong is known for dirty city, but actually they have street cleaning services by Environmental Hygiene department. We see cleaners everyday in our morning walk. The city have these waste bin everywhere as well as special waste bin for dog waste, so Sally doesn't have to carry my poo everywhere!

All streets are swept and waste collection are all done by manually. And apparently,workers normally begin working at daybreak and continue until late evening.All streets are swept at least once everyday- in the main commercial and tourist areas, streets are swept 4 times up to 8 times a day.

It is a lot of work to keep this city tidy for sure.
(*about 21000 litter containers and about 1400 dog excreta collection bins are placed on the streets)
