Audio reportage: “Der Abfall der Gesellschaft”

Aiming to understand what happens to our garbage after we take it out of the house, I offered the idea of an article about it to the German website NPLA (Nachrichtenpool Lateinamerika), a news portal about Latin America based in Berlin. After a long investigation following social issues involved with waste disposal in Porto Alegre, southern Brazil, I developed the reportage with the title “Der Abfall der Gesellschaft“ [Society’s waste].
