Abstract

Objective: to bring up the ways of organizing and remunerating the work of waste
pickers, and to reflect on the reverberation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic
(SARS-COV-2) in their daily activities.
Methodology: the studies are carried out through bibliographic and documentary
research, bringing relevant legislation - notably the National Solid Waste Policy
Law -, and indexes provided by IPEA on the activities of waste pickers; making a
small quantitative cut, which embraces gender and race issues.
Results: to point out situations of inequalities faced by waste pickers as well as
the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic (SARS-COV-2) has had and continues
to have on their activities.
Contributions: to record the realities experienced by waste pickers, at this
current moment in human history, when the COVID-19 pandemic ravages the
planet, claiming millions of lives and accentuating inequalities, especially among
people already considered vulnerable, since before the pandemic period, as it is
the case of recyclable material pickers, whose work is marked by informality and
precariousness.
