dc.description<html> <head> <title></title> </head> <body> <p>Salvaging resources from waste containers and landfills, waste pickers are the main suppliers to the recycling sector in Jordan, yet they often live in poverty and are exposed to multiple risks. The Jordanian government seeks to integrate waste pickers into formal waste management processes, but progress has been slow. Based on interviews with formal and informal actors in the waste sector, this study provides an overview of waste pickers&#8217; socioeconomic conditions and operations and explores pathways for their integration that could support the recycling sector&#8217;s potential to create jobs, alleviate poverty and protect the environment. &#160;</p> </body> </html>en_US
