This project is close to home because I have seen small children rag picking and going through dumps of waste, just to salvage what they can and earn a buck. The conditions are unsanitary and even urbanized cities like Mumbai lack the civic sense of dumping waste in bins. Most often plastic garbage bins get vandalized or stolen, so the concrete Toknee makes perfect sense. It won’t get picked and probably encourage people to segregate and recycle trash, making it safer for the rag pickers to scavenge.
