Libertad Market – Rolando Advincula who 70 years old says he had been at the market for more than 20 years and he has made a living out of segregating wastes coming from various stalls at Libertad.  He separates onions from the entire dump, get these washed and re-sell it at the market later on the day.

“I have been doing this since then, but I make sure that I select what could be salvaged as I also prepare this for our daily consumption”.

Rolando might be doing the dirty job – but for him it is the cleanest way to earn a living out of the trash of other people.#osb
