In this photo taken Tuesday, Nov. 1, 2011, Samroeng Veeravanich, 51, left, and Sing Charoenpot, 57, right, hold baskets and wade through a flooded street in Bang Plad district to collect floating garbage in Bangkok, Thailand. Since garbage trucks can no longer reach many hard-hit areas, brigades of trash collectors have been deployed to do the work on foot, walking 10 kilometers, seven hours a day through fetid water that can hit chest high.
