The municipal worker is covering our waste, preventing pollution and the spread of disease. The poor mother and her son are recollecting things that might be recycled. The vultures are feeding on rotting matter. They all benefit us by disposing of our waste, stuff that we throw out, stuff that we don't want and we don't want to see.
