In a sprawling dump on the outskirts of the Honduran capital of Tegucigalpa, scavenging recycler teams eek out a living as they sift thru tons of garbage daily. The 50 acre site is controlled by one of Central America's most notorious gangs who pay off the police and local authorities who all stay away. The scavengers, many of whom live in rough shelters on the edge of the dump, are paid a higher price for garbage than the local waste companies but ultimately demand higher returns in the long run. Children as young as ten years old work alongside men and women- many of whom are suffering from serious and debilitating health issues. One masked boy, who called himself 'Josue' and said he was 13 years old, 'I wear my Spiderman mask to hide my age and identity'.
