ROMANIA – LIVING ON A DUMP

Romania has the largest ratio of Rroma people in Europe; they account for about 2-3 million people. They are disadvantaged and discriminated, don't get jobs, don't have homes and are not supported by the state. Many Rroma people live on or nearby garbage dumps to look for recyclable materials which can be sold, mostly to the owners of the landfills. For one kilogram of plastic (waste) they receive only 0.03 cents.
