Upstream, waste pickers can buy back the waste from households, which allows them to obtain less soiled waste; this practice is found in areas of a city not served by public services.Reference publications in waste management for developing countries include informal waste pickers at several levels: on the one hand, to understand what proportion of waste is already collected by them; then, to study how a management program would affect their living conditions, either positively (by improving sanitary conditions) or negatively (by reducing their source of income).As in developing countries, poor people see garbage cans as a means of subsistence; as waste is more widespread, there is even more waste that can be directly reused in the bins....
