Pros: good rate of pay, early start times, great exercise
Cons: long hours, extremely physically demanding, technically have no break due to mass workload
I wouldn't want to work there in the same position again. Would generally start each day at 07:00, I would be assigned to a random team (no consistency), then we would begin our daily rounds, collecting refuse bags until our containers were full, we'd visit sites to unload the refuse collected. Then carry on until we had completed our workload. Due to the nature of the job, most drivers wanted to complete their workload ASAP, which involved heavy exercise, often to the point of exertion.
