Mbeubeus

by Simona Risi Documentary Italia 2007 18'

Everyday waste from Dakar arrives at the Mbeubeus dump: 1300 tons a day of material of every kind: home rubbish, sanitary and industrial waste.
More than 2000 people earn their livelihood by working in the dump: some collect items, some sell, others buy, repair or recycle them.
Mame Ngor is one of the 300 children working in the dump as collectors.
On average, a child earns 1000 Cfa (1,52 euros) a day and for many families this income is essential for survival. Mame Ngor tells about his days in the dump, revealing a world that amazes for its organization and normality, despite the toxic smoke, the persistent stench and the awful scenery.
