The Jamaica Star Gallery | Dirty Jobs Garbage Collectors

Shovelling and scraping dead animals off the road, emptying countless bins dripping with slime and foul-smelling liquids those are situations garbage collectors are confronted with on a daily basis.These men and women are often scorned, belittled and sometimes viewed as less than human because of their job.Wholeheartedly they are on a mission to make Jamaica cleaner.Here we bring you the highlights from the Star's day-out with the garbage collectors by photographer Ian Allen.
