Recycling of newspapers by our 'Karang-Guni' men. They go house-to-house, block-to-block to collect daily items that people like us throw down the chute. They are our citizens who do all the dirty work for us. It is back breaking work.

Papers weigh alot, and they work alone, shifting all these with their trolley up and down our 20 - 40 storey blocks. They in turn sell these to the few recycling companies.
