This video called “Clasificadores: Algunas experiencias del trabajo con residuos en Uruguay” was part of a competition called “Comunidades con voz” (“communities with voice”) in 2011 that had as its objective financing projects that gave visibility to vulnerable social groups in Uruguay, using media. The project “Reciclar, un nuevo comienzo” (“Recycling: a new beginning”), was one of the winners and their proposal was to share the work that waste pickers do in Uruguay. The goal of the documentary is to show the waste pickers’ work and living conditions as well as their demands. Watch “Clasificadores”.
