New York Department of Sanitation

To combat the spread of the novel coronavirus, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo reduced the state’s workforce to only those who are “essential.”
Alongside healthcare workers and reporters, New York’s sanitation workers were deemed essential by the state.
We shadowed two sanitation workers in NYC — one of the filthiest cities in the US — early one morning to see what the job was like.
These sanitation workers wake up at 3:30 a.m. and pick up trash from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m.
After five years on the job, the average salary for a sanitation worker is about $77,300, and after 22 years, sanitation workers are eligible for pension, according to the New York City Department of Sanitation.
Sanitation workers must be very cautious when handling trash and the collection truck on New York City streets, but they also enjoy the simple pleasures of the job, like watching the city wake up each morning.
