The Recyclers

Alexia Webster

The city of Johannesburg doesn't have a comprehensive recycling plan so, in a city with very high unemployment rates, an informal recycling system as a form of survival has taken its place. The informal recyclers walk through the city with trolleys and pick up any recyclable goods they can. They find them in bins outside peoples homes, the rubbish businesses throw out or anything they find on the side of the road. They then pull these overloaded trolleys through the city streets to recycling centers where they get weighed and paid a small amount per kilogram.
