The ragpickers of Bulgaria

She is paid barely nothing and suffers daily scorn for being one of Bulgaria's "ragpickers." But there are people fighting for her, and others, to get recognition for their valuable work.

    This woman is retired and she does it (as well as 99% of the others) because she needs the little money she would collect by returning them. Large percent of elderly people in Bulgaria are subjected to poverty during the extreme low pensions they receive.

    Same here in Ukraine. They are underestimated and it is bad.

    Maybe NGOs should fight for the EU to subsidise the price for recycled paper, plastic and glass.

    Very dumb article thou. Trashing bins in centre of the city and making clouds of dust with who knows what kind of bacteria and mold from that waste...No 10x, make it happen in London if you really like it. If you dont want it in your city than we will make NGO "Trash dust for London" and start to support trash bin hunters for you.
