Title:
WIEGO's Position on Dump Closures
Description:

Livelihood plans must be an integral component of any dump closure process. 

Waste pickers around the globe contribute to a cleaner environment, healthier cities and lower municipal budgets. These vital informal workers (and their families) depend on the availability of recyclable materials to earn income. Open dumps pose environmental and health concerns, but any dump closure must include a comprehensive and articulated approach that addresses the impacts on waste pickers.
