A Dump Deferred

A Dump Deferred

logo_npr_125.gifYesterday, NPR's All Things Considered featured a remarkable story about Tijuana, Mexico resident Miroslava Enciso Limon, who after visiting one of the city's notorious dumps at age 17 and seeing the families who lived there, dedicated herself to improving the way trash was handled in the city. After obtaining a degree in industrial engineering, she designed a machine to sort waste and recycling, convinced the city's leaders to adopt it, and hired the dump's former residents as employees. Well worth a listen.
