What contradictory problem do garbage pickers face?


Although the governments of many countries provide assistance for garbage pickers, it is often not utilized.


Many garbage pickers are actually qualified for specific jobs, they just don't have the resources to get off the streets.


Although waste scavenging is hugely beneficial, it is unsupported and often illegal in many countries.


Street artists only enable garbage pickers to remain on the streets even if they make their jobs easier.
