NEW DELHI, INDIA - FEBRUARY 18: Indian workers called Rag Pickers, sort through garbage and pick out recyclable materials to sell from the 70 acre Ghazipur Landfill Site on February 18, 2010 in east Delhi, India. Recycling and rag-picking of municipal solid waste is widely prevalent in Delhi through the involvement of an extensive network of informal (rag-pickers and scrap-dealers) and formal (recycling facilities) stakeholders. A wide range of materials and items are involved, such as, paper, cardboard, plastics, metals, glass, rubber, leather, textiles and clothing etc. The estimated number of rag-pickers in Delhi is believed to be the range of 80,000 to 100,000. Approximately 1200-1500 Tonnes per day are removed from the municipal collection and disposal chain by these activities. However, these activities, carried out in un- hygienic and unscientific manner, have unfavourable environmental, occupational health and community health implications. (Photo by Daniel Berehulak)
