As part of the New Year for the world's "City of Love", Paris, France did some cleaning--literally. Canal Saint-Martin is the subject for this project. The last recorded time it was drained and cleared was fifteen years ago (2001). This time, a bunch of strong-willed community workers collaborated to make it possible. The clean-up drive, which began last January 4 this year, unfolded a lot of shocking surprises--specifically, enormous, and undeniably gross.
The garbage found is terrible. I can say that the view seems unexpected to happen in the area. For proofs, ladies and gentlemen, these are they.
This is how this lovely scenery normally looks like. It's going to have a major purge later on.
To make it easier for the workers, the water level is drained.
Four almost five days, it is assumed that all fish are pulled off.
For some purposes, those living in the habitat were counted for inventory. After all the pre-cleaning procedures, the project is ready to go. Now, brace yourselves for the main event! The Canal Saint-Martin's Garbage show!
Guys, it's a briefcase. Maybe someone's not good with the bag, or maybe it gave the owner bad omens.
Is there a hidden road underneath? Or maybe, a drunk adult messed up then threw it here. Oh well.
Poor rusty, mossy cart. Your shopping career ended up just this gross.
By the power of the bitterness of his boss--who happened to be its former user's ex-girlfriend, he was fired with his office chair. Damn, too wild!
Some authorities might have left an evidence of a road-related accident.
Or maybe, this owner is too tired of getting thin by biking miles and miles.
Oh! This is insane. There's more than two abandoned bikes in here.
Man, you must have sold these pieces. It's worth some pounds. Good to buy some burgers.
Do not judge these tables. They are used by the school..of fish.
There's a story behind here, I'm pretty sure. But what's more important is, that these materials stuck in the canal made no good news.
Sweetie, the more apt term is dollie.
This little piece of block over there didn't serve its purpose well. Pitiful.
I cannot say more.
The canal deserves more respect, man. Treatment's just...too much.
Results were really shocking. Good thing, Paris had this kind of initiative. This clean-up must serve as a wake-up call for nations to observe cleanliness and responsibility. Good job to those who did it!
