Guatemala City’s Dirtiest Secret

Record #:
The Guatemala City garbage dump is the largest landfill in Central America. The scavengers who recycle the dump’s trash help reduce Guatemala’s waste, but breathe toxic fumes and sift through biohazardous materials to do it. The dump has become a research site for UNC students studying public health, elementary education, or environmental science.
