... This is still a great idea!
I've just watch a DVD by the French Director, Florence Tapiau, titled 'Poubelle la vie a Istanbul' and it is all about the way they recycle and collect garbage. People do make a living as garbage collectors as Sharmaine suggests is possible.
Unlike AthenasDaughter (Comment above) I feel that Education however plays a vital part of keeping things clean, unpolluted and eco-friendly. People 'dump on the planet' and either do not care or, do not understand. I prefer to believe that they do not understand the damage they are doing when polluting as this gives me hope that through explaining things (Education) we can clean up this Planet and keep it clean for all lifeforms.
