Waste pickers provide an essential service to developing country cities. They collect, recycle and dispose of the massive amounts of waste generated each day. However, they’re stuck in poverty.
We have a unique strategy for change. Through nurturing waste picker organizations and disseminating best practices we aim not just to create direct impact, but also shift an entire sector.
Our work focuses on our “Learning Labs”. These are interventions that are designed to develop or test the best ways of achieving healthy, sustainable and equitable waste managemnet systems. Our results are published for anybody to use.
