By @randyolson | A DAY AT THE DUMP – Artisanal trash picking at dump sites is dangerous. Many workers have died as they try to pick scraps of plastic while they stand on top of a load being shifted by a huge trackhoe. These photographs show a normal day at dumpsites in India and Indonesia. As you walk through these sites, you realize why experts want composting to go hand and hand with recycling. A clean plastic is a more effective plastic to recycle. This dump (photo 1) is like a slippery slide: when footing is this treacherous and your work is grabbing little bits of plastic out of the jaws of large machines, it becomes problematic. #PlanetorPlastic
