You won't believe what cleaners find at roadhouses

WHAT does a cleaner pick up from the ground at the parking area of a big roadhouse?

Some many consider this a menial subject but Spy found it interesting when yarning to one such worker.

I was waiting for some truck drivers to walk back from the roadhouse eatery when I saw a female worker looking for rubbish to place in a wheelie bin.

"You will find it hard to believe what I have picked up. Regularly I find empty beer bottles, syringes, used condoms and even the odd bong," she said.

The lady wore gloves but certainly didn't put the blame on truckies in most cases.

"Oh no, truckies are generally respectful and most put their rubbish in the bins. I find most of it is left by tourists who park up here," she said.
