Burrowmen Waste Disposal

Burrowmen have a vital job no one wants any part of, and is often a job that one is sentenced to. Some that do this grow to be proud but most find it to be terrible. They are subsurface trash disposal. They actually using enchanted equipment deliver trash down to the mantel of the planet. This is a relatively clean way to remove the trash and reintegrate the materials into the world, but despite the enchanted protections that their equipment yields, the smell sticks to them for weeks after, and many lose their lives to accidents. The pay for the job is exceptionally high for such a job, but the ultimate waste disposal can even wear down the powerful enchantments on the equipment.    The typical sentence for this task is three to six months as a burrowman. The trash is collected and taken down thrice a week, and typically they work two shift a week. They actually are required to report any odd things such as body parts or contraband that they discover in the trash, which many do not appreciate due to the delay in trash disposal.
