Bin Man

Jan 29, 2012 on BBC TWO at 12:00 AM


London binman Wilbur Ramirez is heading to Jakarta, the vast mega city that is the capital of Indonesia. For ten days Wilbur works with Imam, one of the army of semi-destitute binmen who collect rubbish in one of the biggest and fastest growing citie... (more)s in the world. From the health and safety conscious world of British waste management, Wilbur enters a life of squalor and poverty - staying next to a fly-ridden dump and joining Imam's back breaking daily round as he collects the rubbish of Jakarta's wealthy. It's a moving journey as Wilbur discovers the insecurity and danger that dominates Imam's life, and his powerlessness to change his circumstances.
