Nonprofit poop patrol group hits San Fran streets in ‘the scavenger hunt from hell’

When it comes to the deteriorating leftist utopia of San Francisco, little notice is paid to the once-pristine Pacific Coast city’s unsung heroes whose mission is to remove human feces from the streets, literally an uphill battle as well as a really crappy job, but hey, someone’s got to do it.

“See this Code Brown? I’m sending it to one of the workers now,” Ken McCarter, leader of a cleaning team said as he “paused to look at a pile of feces on a San Francisco street in the South of Market neighborhood,” as he took a picture and fired off a cleaning request, according to a profile on the dedicated workers who are tasked with scaping the crap off the streets.

The profile on the work of the SoMa West Community Benefit District comes courtesy of the San Francisco Standard which took a look at the work of ambassadors who are paid a starting wage of roughly 22 bucks an hour in addition to hazard pay with a bonus of $3 for every “Code Brown” that they bag.

The city moved to address the stinky and embarassing problem several years ago as its reputation began to suffer, in a 2018 local media report, it was announced that a “poop patrol” had been created with the blessing of Democrat Mayor London Breed.

“It’s the scavenger hunt from hell that my team has to play every day,” said the nonprofit’s executive director Christian Martin “Seriously, there’s not enough [public restrooms], when you’ve got thousands of people living on the streets.”

“I learned the hard way that if you’re giving a flat rate for the hour, and your job has, say, 10 [Code Browns] to pick up, eventually you’re going to start ‘not seeing’ those sh*ts,” Martin told the outlet. “That’s nasty work, so we were like, ‘We gotta incentivize people to start doing the dirty work.’”

“Honestly, it depends on the [situation]. We’re in the weeds, and it’s gross,” cleaning supervisor Ed Moore told the San Francisco Standard. “If it’s liquid, rinse it off. Solidified, used to be liquid? That might need power. If it’s a log, that’s like picking up dog poop: plastic bag.”

Just another day in paradise…
