Truck with waste collectors and garbage cruising in the central business district

Context of the observation

These waste collectors were seen in the central business district, hanging on the waste truck in a manner that was anything but secure. They basically sat in the waste they had collected. It is unknown what kind of waste it was, if from bins or the side of the road or how far it traveled. But it was one of the most official seeming mobile workplaces seen. The uniforms they wore give a hint that this waste collecting truck either belongs to the official city government or to a private company collecting waste (for whatever reason).

What are the possible benefits of mobile workplaces that are organised by the government?

It might be also interesing to ask not only for the benefits of the organised workplaces, but also to look at the benefits that derive from this organisations - this might be an interesting potential.
