Bulldozing Trash Into the Ocean

This is the perfect example of government “work” in action.

A Denmark municipality has spent more than $150,000 a year to remove debris and seaweed from a beach only to dump it back into the water, according to Danish national broadcaster Danmarks Radio.


Video published by Danmarks Radio shows a bulldozer out in the water at Stillinge Beach in Slagelse, Denmark. The bulldozer blade lifts and appears to dump a slew of material and debris, which reportedly included plastic, into the water before coming back out to shore.


The bulldozer operator uses the rake and the blade to scoop up seaweed and plastic along the beach shore. When the collected debris fills the blade, the bulldozer heads out to the water, Danmarks Radio reported. The process happens twice a week during the summer in Denmark.

    Sounds like they’re not quite sure how “recycling” works.

    Well, technically the bulldozer operator did what he was supposed to do. “Clean up the damn beach!” The rest is what you call “job security”, in public sector parlance.
