Tons of rubbish collected at Tiananmen Square during Chinese holidays

Help

As China enjoys an eight-day national holiday, cleaners in Beijing's Tiananmen Square are being kept busy.

With thousands of visitors and locals flocking to the square, the rubbish many people leave behind creates a big job for the team of cleaners, with nearly nine tons of rubbish reportedly collected in one day alone.
