If many people’s lives depended on it, they had rather die than get involved with it. The mere thought of it could send shivers down the spine of many. But scavenging for scrap and plastics at the oblogo land fill site in Mallam, a suburb of Accra, Ghana may not be that bad. Wondering why?
The income could build you a two bedroom apartment and save you high rents from landlords. It could pay your fees and get you the trendy clothes you have always wished for. It may not be the best if u have to inhale the stench of the refuse, but hey thats what nose masks are made for. Working on the land fill site may not be appealing but it could be worth considering if there are no job vacancies in corporate environments. After all, money from the bank and that from the dump site are no different.
The value is the same.
