Global Alliance of Waste Pickers Newsletter


In November, Inclusive Cities ally the Global Alliance of Waste Pickers released the 8th edition of the Global Alliance of Waste Pickers newsletter, “Struggles and Victories: Waste Pickers on the Frontline.” In this three-month edition, they share a few highlights from waste pickers around the globe.

  • In South Africa, SAWPA called on their government to put an end to incineration projects.
  • In the Dominican Republic, waste pickers raised their voices about the dangers they face at a landfill.
  • In Brazil, dumpsite workers continue to fight for their rights to compensation and inclusion, and against incineration.
  • The organized waste pickers of the Uruguaiana landfill saw victory after a successful solidarity campaign.
