International Waste Pickers Day

World Waste Pickers Day 2023

Wed, 01/03/2023 - 15:56

Today on #WorldWastePickersDay, we celebrate the over 15 million waste pickers globally, who handle our waste unflinchingly. They rummage through our #waste, salvaging tonnes of it that might otherwise have ended up in #landfills. And they even look through the vast wastelands of our landfills, recovering something small here and there. Let's celebrate them for they are the true unsung heroes.

International Waste Pickers Day 2022

#India’s estimated 1.5 million to 4 million waste pickers who are undervalued and underpaid, do not even have a place in social security schemes. It's hightime their invaluable work is acknowledged & formalised as essential work. #WastePickersDay #ZeroWaste #CircularEconomy
