However, Li Yuqiang still have to contact with feces, "a week to clean up a sedimentation tank, at the beginning or someone to go in person to clean up with a shovel, now we buy a hook machine, we really do not have to contact the feces."

In 1986, he was transferred to the Guangzhou harmless treatment Plant (formerly the precursor of the Innocuous Processing center), which was being prepared for the hunt for dung.

Li Yuqiang says that while technology is higher than before, it is still hard to avoid a foul smell in a stool-handling facility. He has got used to taking off his work clothes, bathing and changing clothes before going home. Once, he went to the city to carry out the clean-up of septic tank, because there is no bathing conditions outside, he was forced to wear a taste of clothes to take the bus, the result attracted the whole car people strange eyes.

"The septic tank on Baiyun Mountain is the hardest to get." Li Yuqiang said that the 2003 center contracted the Baiyun Mountain Scenic area of septic tank clean-up work, Li Yuqiang was assigned to deal with Shingchun septic tank. Driving a dung truck to reach Shingchun doorway, Li Yuqiang and colleagues dumbfounded: Shingchun built in the mountainside, dung cart can not drive into, can only park in the Peak Park, the feces into the Shingchun. and the Shingchun septic tank is located at the bottom of the park, due to the gap is too large, septic vehicles not enough suction feces. "The machine is no good. "Li Yuqiang and colleagues hand bucket, the feces out after a bucket of barrels to the peak park transport, from day to night, before the Shingchun of the septic tank scouring clean."

Message to young people: do a line of love

In this year's "Graceful division", the youngest winner is only 25 years old, and has been honored for two years. Li Yuqiang The honor of retiring, he has something to say: "The young people in our line, to do a line of love." Since choose to do this line, it is doomed to deal with dirty smelly. All are for the city service, should be able to see oneself. "Edit: Internship Editor
