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.

Mojokerto, Indonesia
Sunarni laughs as her husband Salam jokes with his friend near a pile of rubbish at Bangun village in Mojokerto, East Java province, Indonesia, August 1, 2019. Salam said recycled rubbish paid for his children's schooling, and also bought a house for his family and livestock. "I have nine goats now," said Salam, who works as a waste broker between villagers and a nearby paper factory and says his job is easier than farming.
