    ABSTRACT:
    Informal recycling is widespread in developing countries and involves the collection, sorting, and selling of recyclable materials. Workers are exposed to hazards including the risk of cuts and musculoskeletal injury, infection, exposure to medical waste, and respiratory conditions like bronchitis, pneumonia, and sinusitis and often use insufficient personal protective equipment.  The objective is to assess the occupational and environmental health hazards faced by informal recyclers working at a landfill in Asunción, Paraguay.
