Editor(s):Holmes, John R
Author(s):Vogler, J A
Publisher Name:John Wiley and Sons Ltd.

Annotation:Discussing the opportunities and current techniques of recycling material wastes in various Third World countries, Vogler draws attention to a wide variety of recycling and reclamation patterns and strategies among developing countries. Drawing evidence from different countries, he concludes that the extremely poor scavengers who provide the raw materials for recycling are “grossly exploited” by industrial and market powers and points to the excellent opportunities that exist for improving the safety, efficiency, and equitability of reclamation processes in developing countries.
