This small yet powerful book documents the lives of the trash diggers who serve society, sincerely and silently, unsung, unremarked, and un-respected. It brings to light the utility of waste pickers in the context of proliferation of city waste, the urgent need for cost-effective waste management in third-world countries, and why we must understand existing best practices in waste management and adopt environment-friendly options of managing solid waste.
