The Novo Gramacho landfill where this innovative project occurs is depicted in the internationally acclaimed documentary and 2011 Academy Awards nominee, Waste Land. A massive landfill site (1.3 million square meters, or about 320 acres) on the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro, Gramacho has been home to a host of garbage pickers for almost 30 years. The garbage pickers – known as catadores, earn a living picking through the trash for recyclables.
