A huge cluster of rubbish has been seen floating on the upper stream of the Yangtze River in Chongqing since last Friday, following a bout of heavy rain in the city.
The garbage appears to be mingled with some kind of green algae, and swaths of the disgusting mixture have gathered across nearly 10 thousand square meters of the river near Yudong Jiangbin Road, Ba’nan District, NetEase reports.
The local authority has already started cleaning up the garbage. However, staff with the sanitation department said more trash may continue to gather if the river’s upstream experiences rainfall again.
