Reshaping our systems of inclusive recycling is important, with waste pickers an essential part of Brazil’s economy, write Sonia Dias, Ricardo Abussafy, Juliana Gonçalves and João Pedro Martins. They note that the study summarised in this briefing is a snapshot of a crisis scenario in the inclusive recycling sector.

The overview – which is expanded in a full report – looks at the functioning of cooperatives of waste pickers during COVID-19, the impact on the trade of recyclable materials from the perspective of cooperatives of waste pickers during the pandemic, and the health situation of waste pickers.
