My name is waste-pickers

In Sisdol, the waste-pickers have a deal with the garbage truck drivers that allow them to segregate the different kind of garbage in order to sell it to the recycling centers privately in exchange of a profit percentage. This business is growing because the waste-pickers have the chance to earn more money compared to working for a recycling company. For me it represent a sustainable travel because increase the awareness about the garbage disposal problem in order to improve the environment in which we live.
