免費報紙

R0015558

不知道從什麼時候開始,免費報紙成了這個城市的必需品,更不知從什麼時候開始,排隊取報成了老人們晨早的工事。

今早為了拍攝一場老人取報的場景,劇組混在新浦崗大有街派報現場。輕飄飄的免費報有價,老人家無收入,靠收集報紙秤重賺取少許生活補貼。過百老婆婆老公公冒雨輪候一天兩輪的派報。不少老人家反覆排隊,卻被排報工人謾罵及拒絕再發報。派報工人更玩弄派報時序,偏偏要在雨勢最大的時候派報,令情況更混亂。

一位老婆婆對我們說,每天都來排隊,每天都被派報工人玩弄。一些上班一族更無恥,完全不理會長長的人龍,伸手在隊頭索取免費報紙。

我們的城市病了,且病入膏肓。

  1. a terrible way to waste paper. I’ve not picked up any free paper ever since I own a smartphone.

    When our government says we have over 50% of recycle rate, that’s just a number. When we look deeper, we see the actual recycling being taken place is as low as we cannot see. As a citizen, I do not see a comprehensive program in the recycling project; we see more poor/old people picking up card boards, papers, aluminum cans than a dedicate recycling team working on the street (i know it’s outsourced and they’re normal garbage workers).

    It’s funny to see how advertising pays the newspaper publisher and it turns into paper. The paper gets picked up by us and turn it back into money. A total lack of social responsibility to keep on wasting paper. Should we thanks the people pick up paper for a living or blame the parties who keep on recklessly wasting paper?
