Inhabited Landfill

Posted on January 28, 2013 by team


How is it like to sleep in a big bag filled with old blankets in winter? To wash once a week at best? To find home under the planking covered with linoleum? To earn a living by sorting wastes?

We are going to visit one landfill in Belarus and find answers to these questions.

What we see first are piles of garbage, special equipment and many many crows. The smell becomes more and more unbearable while the land fill is becoming closer. People who live there are always accompanied by dogs.

Those who collect garbage are so-called "bosses" here, it's a great privilege among them. They can earn up to 50 bucks a day. Volunteers bring clothes and food to them sometimes. However they do not like strangers and can even beat them.

    This is the issue we have with computers. In the old days, when you served your time for a crime it was over. Now it never ends. Your past is an instant search away.

    This will become big business in the years to come. People will be “mining” landfills to obtain old electronics and stuff for the metals. Old headphones for the rare earth magnets etc…. It’ll be big money too. Forced, retroactive recycling.

    Capitalism is headed for the scrap heap of history; Stalinism is headed for the dung heap of history. I’m headed for the next galaxy over…

    I want a shack in the woods far from the commercialized mayhem of our “so called civilizations”. If you find any neat galaxies, let me know… “kay”.
