cartonero

A cartonero, one of BA's 60,000 or so freelance recyclers that comb the garbage throughout the whole city looking for anything of value. This guy is young, maybe 16 or 17, so his cart is not too loaded up. Bigger, older guys sometimes tow four, five, six times this much stuff, always on these two-wheeled carts that have to be carefully balanced. Serious work.
