When it comes to sanitation workers, many people will say that they are beauticians in the city. Indeed, we dare not imagine what a city would look like without the hard work of sanitation workers. However, there is no sanitation worker in a country in the world, this country is Norway.
Norway is located in the northernmost part of the earth, in the western part of Scandinavia, with a third of the land area within the Arctic Circle. When it comes to the Arctic, alpine glaciers and snow-capped scenes will appear in everyone’s minds. In fact, this is indeed the case. Therefore, Norway’s winter is particularly long and cold. Many common vegetations cannot grow here, but there is a plant that is an exception. The plant is spruce. Spruce belongs to the category of evergreen trees. It is hardy and dry. The trunk is tall and tall, and the shape of the tree is a minaret. Norway’s unique climate environment has become fertile soil for spruce growth. Therefore, clouds are planted on both sides of Norway’s streets or fields and mountains. Cedar. We know that every time the weather gets colder, the leaves will fall naturally, and the scene of “leaves clear the autumn” appears, but the streets and wilderness of Norway are not spruce, buildings, farms, forests, so it is very Less leaves will naturally not require cleaning.
Speaking of which, some people have to ask, there is no naturally generated garbage, so what about humans? After all, the garbage that a city produces every day is amazing. In fact, this problem is also easy to explain. As we said before, Norway has a long winter, and the road is covered with snow for most of the year, so the city is particularly fresh and clean. Some people may also say that the snow should always be cleaned! Of course, the snow on the road must be cleared, but the way Norway removes snow is also very special. They do not have to sweep, but use a large snow shovel. If there is icing on the road, there will also be a stone scatterer to scatter small stones to prevent people from falling due to walking and slipping. When the ice and snow melt in the coming year, the government will arrange a special stone removal vehicle to clean up. Of course, snow shovel trucks, stone-spreading trucks, and stone-removing trucks all require people to operate in the vehicle. If you have to say that there are also sanitation workers in Norway, then these people who operate tool carts are not. But these “environmental sanitation workers” are fundamentally different from our impression of sanitation workers who use large brooms and dustpans to clean in the hot sun and severe cold. They do not need to get greedy early, or worry about not being treated fairly. In Norway, everyone has a strict time limit for work. Once the time is exceeded, overtime must be paid. If an emergency requires overtime work, additional subsidies must be paid.
There is no falling leaves, and there is a way to clean up the snow. What if someone unconsciously throws away the garbage? Although everyone knows that littering is unethical everywhere, there are always exceptions to everything, not to mention that this is the case in our country, nor does it happen in Norway, but much less. Here I want to talk about a phenomenon. I don’t know if you usually pay attention to it. On a clean occasion, we will always produce a self-discipline behavior invisible, because no one can bear the destruction of beautiful pictures. For those dirty and messy places, we have no worries. Anyway, this is already the case, and we don’t care about one more. And Norway is a place that can be kept clean all year round, so people have a sense of consciousness and gradually form a virtuous circle. So even if there are sanitation workers in Norway, it is not as busy and hard as it is in the streets and alleys as we see everywhere in the country.
Of course, it does not mean that Norway does not have sanitation workers, national management and the quality of people are good. After all, the environment is different, the national conditions are different, and there are people with good quality everywhere. Stones from other hills, can learn. Good things, to share and learn from. At the same time, we fully respect those who greet the early morning before others, and those who work hard for society, others and themselves. In terms of protecting the environment, “starting with me” is not just a slogan, I hope more people can start with me and lead by example to give society and themselves a better living environment.
