Packing recyclables - 3rd place

Photo by Herlina Sjaifudin


This trash collector was trained to recognize quality and types of plastic. He works very hard to pack the recyclable litter for re-selling. This project is a cooperation between Palapa Plastic Recycle and Austcare, one of the implementers of the MDF-funded UNDP Waste Management Programme. The program provides daily income for close to 700 people.
