From Trash to Cash, recovering practices, wholesale markets and industrial recycling in Delhi

Abstract : With a global urban population of three billion, cities are currently generating around 1.3 billion tons of waste every year (The World Bank 2012). By 2050 cities, most of them in the South, will account for two thirds of global demographic growth, producing even greater volumes of waste. Although widely neglected by urban policies, the question of urban waste has become a major issue in the context of global urbanisation (Un-Habitat, 2010). It is now commonly accepted that we need to better control the socioenvironmental impacts of human emissions, a source of multiple pollutions and “environmental injustice” (Durand, 2015), affecting in particular the margins of cities’ with the emergence of gigantic landfill sites and increasingly severe forms of pollution. This film presents the informal recovery of materials done by “waste workers” (Corteel, Le Lay 2011).
