Wheelie Clean

Kathryn Quinn

This Chinese hospital has come up with a new take on the idea of the wheelie bin by fitting cleaners hired to empty bins with rollerskates to speed up the rubbish collection.

Park Fang who is manager at the Huaxi Hospital in Chengdu, in Sichuan province in south-west China said that they had been forced to cut the number of cleaners because of cost and also because the hospital was so large the staff that remained had been too slow to empty rubbish bins.

So they hired new cleaners with the one qualification being that they could rollerskate to a high standard and say that since then they haven't looked back. The new roller skater cleaners get paid 15% more than the old cleaners.

He said: "There were always too many cleaners here anyway marching backwards and forwards with rubbish and this way everything is done much faster with less staff. It's also fun to give people something to look at and nobody has to wait very long at all now for a bin to be emptied."

Lian Chen, one of the cleaners, said: "It is definitely the coolest job I have ever had. I get paid to roller skate eight hours a day and I love roller skating. The hospital is a great place to practice with lots of interesting things happening all the time."
