The current trend of what to do with trash is to bury it to make it go away. But like information on the Matrix, it doesn’t always stay buried.
Members of Los Recicladores live and work from trash dumps, making a living recycling and using what’s been buried for generations. Need a DVD player? Readers Digest in paper form? How about a twentieth-century car engine? A Recicladore collects many low-tech items or raw materials.
The community of recicladores trades recyclables for foodstuffs and medicine. Standard currency can be used to buy his stuff, but it’s not preferred as most transactions are barter.
Recicladores also have the advantage of knowing just where a body—dead or alive—can be stashed and never found.
