Cardboard Lady

In Korea there are thousands of mostly older people who collect cardboard and other recyclables from the street.  They get their recyclables from garbage collection areas, in front of shops (some shop owners put their empty boxes next to the door because they know the cardboard collectors will be around), and the side of the street.  They make their money by bringing cans and cardboard to a recycling centre but I think the government should give them a wage as well.  The city collectors come by just a couple of times a week but these people with their carts are going around all day.
