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.
