by Michael Trenerry from his project “Dundoras Dump”

“Dundoras Dump is located on the outskirts of Nairobi and is in the middle of several residential slum neighbourhoods. The area is divided into five phases. Phase One being the furthest from the dumpsite and Phase Five being next to the dump and the most dangerous.
The area is approximately two and a half square kilometers in size and is home to over 3000 jobs. The people working in the dumpsite do so by their own means. They claim areas and essentially spend their day sorting through either plastic, metal or any other recyclable materials. The health concerns are incredibly high with immense levels of methane in the air.
Children, women and men collect rubbish in their areas & theyn carry them to weight stations where they collect cash for their find in. Most are lucky to make a dollar or two per day.
When rubbish is dumped, intense odours spread through the tip alongside methane from the back of the truck. Most workers within the site have skin infections and once infected can easily lead to other diseases.
Sadly, this wasteland is home to many people. They work, eat and sleep within the dumpside”.
