by the kilos

by the kilos, originally uploaded by tropicalrips.

i spoke to these scrap collectors for a while during the shoot, this old man is a worker here, i spoke with his boss, i'll post his photo in the workshop :)

according to the boss, they can sell these metal scraps for $0.25 per kilo, and will buy it from you for $0.20 per kilo
the plastic is also for sale, they actually hav a higher value at $0.30 per kilo, but because plastic is lighter, you'll need to collect a lot more to make the 1 kilo mark :P
