Snapshot: The plastics recyclers of Lima

These guys are recyclers of plastic who work on the shores of Rio Rimac, on the outskirts of Lima, Peru. It is a completely informal activity. If you move along the river, heading further from the urban area, you will see many different recycling activities along Rio Rimac. They use the river to wash the plastic sheets, then let the sheets dry, and finally pack them.
