The daily lives of the UK’s clean-up teams are often filthy, disturbing, dangerous and gruesome. Welcome to the world of the grime fighters.
The UK is one of the grime capitals of Europe, we throw away enough rubbish to fill London’s Albert Hall in two hours, that’s over 3 and a half million double-decker bus fulls every year. For the army of professionals who clean up after us it’s a never ending battle, but modern life means a lot worse to deal with in the war against the nation’s grime. Who discovers the legacy of undiscovered deaths, human fouling, squats and graffiti, who rids us of the vermin that thrive in our throwaway society? The daily lives of the clean up teams are often filthy, disturbing, dangerous and gruesome, welcome to the world of the grime fighters!
