The Wider Image: Cash for trash: Indonesia village banks on waste recycling
Indonesia's crackdown on imported foreign waste has upset the village of Bangun, where residents say they earn more money sorting through piles of garbage than growing rice in once-lush paddy fields. Overwhelmed by a spike in waste imports after China closed its doors to foreign garbage, Indonesia has tightened import rules and customs inspections, sending hundreds of tonnes of foreign waste back to their origin countries. Green groups praised the crackdown, but Bangun residents say restricting trash from countries like the United States, Canada and Australia will wipe out a key source of income.

Eugene, an 87-year-old retired Frenchman, is seen at his home sorting out food collected in garbage containers next to a supermarket in Nice June 13, 2013. A former interior decorator, and a pensioner of 24 years, Eugene lives in Nice and is the owner of a small apartment in a bourgeois district of the city. Although he receives a monthly pension of 1000 euros (1300 $US), he started rummaging through trash bins to collect food in 2012, as he did when a teenager during World War II, because 'times are hard' he said. He drives his old car seeking out supermarket trash containers in different parts of the city to fill his fridge. Eugene dreams of going to Las Vegas. Following a government report today June 14, 2013 the French should pay contributions for longer to get a full pension and well-off pensioners should get fewer tax rebates.

Mya Wollf (R), 28, and Robin Pickell, 23, practising 'freegans', sort through food they recently found in a dumpster behind Commercial Drive in Vancouver, British Columbia April 10, 2012. A 'Freegan' is someone who gathers edible food from the garbage bins of grocery stores or food stands that would otherwise have been thrown away. Freegans aim to spend little or no money purchasing food and other goods, not through financial need but to try to address issues of over-consumption and excess. Picture taken April 10, 2012.
