Waste pickers in Argentina sort through thousands of tonnes of trash a day in the poor neighborhood of José León Suárez, which is on the outskirts of Buenos Aires.

The workers, who earn about 12,500 Argentine pesos (less than $300) per month, are pushing for better waste segregation, more recognition from the state and investment to give them technology to help improve their work, Reuters reports. The lack of coordinated policy on recycling means that most garbage is mixed together with recyclables and workers have to sort through bags of waste to separate what could be recycled, compacted and sold.

A local waste picker cooperative, Bella Flor, is operating alongside the state entity that deals with waste management for the city and province of Buenos Aires to work on the issue.
