Turn­ing a blind eye

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - LIFESTYLE -

It’s a dirty job, but some­one’s got to do it. Waste dis­posal work­ers are un­der-ap­pre­ci­ated in their never-end­ing job of clean­ing up af­ter us.

Heavy load:

Lonely lit­ter: Be­side a busy high­way, a lonely bag of trash sits for­lornly. Many Malaysians tend to adopt the ‘out of sight, out of mind’ men­tal­ity when it comes to trash – as long as it’s not in their homes or cars, they just don’t care what hap­pens to it.

First-world in­fra­struc­ture, third-world men­tal­ity: The ma­jes­tic Petronas Twin Tow­ers jux­ta­posed with the ugly side of Malaysians – lit­ter­ing.

Un­heeded: What’s the use of a warn­ing sign if no one heeds it?

Caught in the act: Notic­ing the driver throw­ing rub­bish out of his car, Suchen and Ren­shaw fol­lowed this van, wait­ing to catch the cul­prit on film.
