    Street cleaner job? 16th Jun 17 at 8:00 PM
    As a street cleaner, what the job entails? Are we given a uniform and do we have to take it home dirty or we take it off in the council premises and change/shower there? How do we clean the uniforms? Are we given masks, gloves, etc? And anyone knows what are the duties in short? Thanks!

    the job entails cleaning the street, the duties are cleaning the streets.

    its not as dirty a job as you think, we've come a long way since the dark ages.

    have fun, i respect street cleaners a great deal.

    Sorry, but if you are aren't capable of working out how to ask some basic questions like "what does the job description mean?", then you probably aren't suitable. It's a street cleaner. What do you think cleaning streets involves?

    Well, having experienced it now, it is a very dirty job and more importantly the people who do it have zero hygiene sense!

    Bet it pays well though? Keeping Britain tidy is a noble cause.

    In my world this job wouldn't exist.

    And there would be a few people (ex-litterbugs) walking around without the odd limb.

    I'm guessing here that you share the uniform (jackets etc) with the looks of it? If so ask if you can take it home on a weekend to wash it as they probably would. They might wash it less often, depends on their rules
    My targets to end 2018:
    1) To get down to 12 stone then treat to a safari. At start 17 stone 7 lbs 8lb lost 69lbs to go
    2) to find new challenges

    If I think that executing people for parking across the lines in a car park is a bit much, it doesn't follow that I think it's OK to park across the lines.

    By the way I think you went off the planet with topic change. The OP asked what the job requires and your input was cut peoples limbs off lol

    Please take me through your thought process, I'm fascinated about your lack of cogent reasoning.
