The Jeddah dump society

Hasan Hatrash has written a nice article on the economics and self government of dump pickers at the Jeddah dump. Read the whole thing in the Arab News.

The dump is to be relocated to a modern facility. One reason is that the trash pickers burn discarded items to extract valuable metal. The burning plastics create pollution and the neighbors are complaining.
