Known as "the most precipitous mountain under heaven", Hua Mountain, located 120 kilometers east of Xi'an, is famous for its "bizarrerie, straightness, steep and beauty." As a national-level scenic spot, sanitation workers are often seen clearing away the rubbish left by tourists on the cliffs of the five peaks of Hua Mountain. They, wearing safety helmets and fastened with cords, go up and down the cliffs. Only in 2011, they successfully dissuaded 46 people from suicide.

While one can praise the great work done by these cleaner, whom might not be appreciated by the environmental polutters, or trourist, I suggest the Chinese local governemt put up the lot of signs and rubbish bines to remind the tourist stop poluting the enviroment by putting the rubbish in the bines. If that fail, use the penality methods like that in Singapore the the literers will be fined said RMB $100 if they caught litering the enviorment.
