An app called Cataki is helping Brazil’s waste pickers make more money.
The service fosters human relation and waste collection.
Roughly 90% of Brazil’s recycled waste is collected by waste-pickers.
Poverty is one important reason behind the large number of waste-pickers here in Brazil.
But over time, these independent pickers have become key elements in the country’s waste management, particularly in big cities like Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.
