Waste Pickers’ Newsletters

See below a number of different waste pickers’ newsletters from around the world. There’s the Global Alliance newsletter, the Alliance of Indian Waste Pickers’ newsletter, the African newsletter, and the Latin American newsletter. Enjoy!

The updates we share in these newsletters are by waste pickers and allies. Sometimes we post directly from what individuals or groups have already shared via social media, websites or emails; sometimes we edit, organize and translate. The goal is for information from waste pickers to be shared across borders. As usual, we invite waste pickers’ organizations to keep sending their updates so we can keep sharing global struggles and victories.

If you want to be part of the editorial committee or learn how to post your own updates on the, please write to info [at]
